#HOTTOPIC: Clown & Bouffon Workshop

This workshop is an introductory exploration of clown and bouffon. Have a joyful experience where artists and community can hang out and play without the goal of creating a product in mind. This event will be facilitated by dynamic artist Janice Jo Lee, a writer and performing artist. Janice combines her literature, music and theatre background with her political activism to create art that engages through its truth, comedy, lyricism and power. On stage, it is important for her to demonstrate power in embodied performances, unrelenting honesty, rhythm and humility. Lee aims to create an energy with an audience that is electric and connected, leaving us aglow. Snacks will be provided. Please bring your own water bottle and something to take notes with if you wish. Please note, all participants must be masked when not eating or drinking. Maximum of 20 participants — register to secure your spot!
