3-day Red Nose Clown Intensive

2018
Feb. 16-19 Ljubljana SI
May 18-20 Ljubljana SI
November 9-11 Maribor SI

THE WORKSHOP

There are as many ways to approach clown as there are opinions on what clown, as a theatrical genre, is. This workshop derives its method from the work of Giovanni Fusetti, who linked the approach of Jacques Lecoq with practices of somatic psychology.

Lecoq contributed the concept of the red nose as the smallest mask. Accordingly, the workshop covers Leqoc principles of mask play: contact, articulation of movement, the levels of play, and breath.

The participants and pedagogues will also analyze the movement dynamics of each participant—their rhythm, gait, gestural habits, etc.—and explore the expressive themes inherent in each performer’s movement and physical presence. This engenders an awareness that is then transformed (“transpersonalized”/“masked”), by way of amplification and play, into the clown state.

Finally, the group enters into solo and duo improvization, expanding the life of the clown and introducing the process of writing from the clown state.

THE TEACHERS

Alenka Marinič (SLO) and Justin Durel (USA) are independent theatre artists who have created, performed in, and directed many performances throughout Europe, the US, and Canada. They have been teaching together since 2013, when they finished their studies at the Helikos International School of Theatre Creation, under master teacher Giovanni Fusetti. Rooted in the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq, their workshops explore theatre and performance from a physical perspective, always emphasizing the interaction between technique and play. As teachers, they have taught workshops in Slovenia, the US, Italy, and Germany.

THE PEDAGOGY

The laws of movement determine the tools with which the performer can play. The performer’s use of these tools is called technique. The performers enjoyment in using these tools is called play. Exploring breath, spatial awareness, human postures, gestures, and body language, the pedagogy of Durel and Marinič focuses on the emotions that arise when technique and play coincide.

LARVAL MASK

A 5-DAY INTENSIVE WORKSHOP

KULTURNI VRT KATZENBERG (KAMNIK, SI)

7TH-11TH OF AUGUST 2017

THE MASKS

Larval masks are big and simple, with shapes that only begin to suggest an expression, while never fully defining the features of a human face. These masks force the performer to express solely by way of his or her gesture—no words, no sound, no face—thus bringing the art of acting back to the body and its physical presence on the stage. The masks have been created by Durel and Marinič.

THE WORKSHOP

We'll begin with an overview of Lecoq-based physical theatre principles. The students and pedagogues then move on to an exploration and analysis of each mask. After the principles of physical theatre and mask play are established, the student will learn the best ways to bring each individual mask to life in terms of rhythm, gesture, breath, and other physical theatre principles. The group then moves on to improvization and play, experiencing the life of these masks in various scenes.  The workshop will end in a public presentation.

Alenka Marinič (SLO) and Justin Durel (USA) are independent theatre artists who have created, performed in, and directed many performances throughout Europe, the US, and Canada.  They have been teaching together since they finished their studies at the Helikos International School of Theatre Creation, under master teacher Giovanni Fusetti.  Rooted in the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq, their workshops explore theatre and performance from a physical perspective, always emphasizing the interaction between technique and play.  As teachers, they have taught workshops in Slovenia, the US, Italy, and Germany.

Clown: From Birth to the Stage

A 6-day intensive workshop at Kamfest

WITH ALENKA MARINIČ AND JUSTIN DUREL

 
DSCN0185.jpeg
 

AUGUST 15-20, KATZENBERG, KAMNIK, SI (WORKSHOP IS FULL)

In this course of this 6-day workshop, participants can:

  • Discover their clown

  • Gain a deeper awareness of their body and performance instincts

  • Develop at least one routine with their clown,

  • Perform at Kamfest during a presentation of clown numbers developed in the workshop

 
 

THE WORKSHOP

The workshop, which is an evolution of the 3-day clown workshop that Marinič and Durel have been developing over the past three years, will begin with an overview of Lecoq-based physical theatre principles. The participants and pedagogues then move on to an exploration and analysis of each participant’s body—their rhythm, gait, gestural habits, etc.  From analysis, the group then moves into play, allowing each performer to fully embody their clown.  At this point in the process, each clown’s comic, poetical, and completely unique state of being emerges.

The group then enters the second part of the process, creating performances from the clown state.  This includes (but is not limited to) solo and group numbers, music and dance bits, unusual and unique skills, disasters, triumphs, and flops.  Finally, some of the creations will be presented as part of a performance at Kamfest.

Alenka Marinič (SLO) and Justin Durel (USA) are independent theatre artists who have created, performed in, and directed many performances throughout Europe, the US, and Canada.  They have been teaching together since they finished their studies at the Helikos International School of Theatre Creation, under master teacher Giovanni Fusetti.  Rooted in the pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq, their workshops explore theatre and performance from a physical perspective, always emphasizing the interaction between technique and play.  As teachers, they have taught workshops in Slovenia, the US, Italy, and Germany.
