In October 2007 the International Clown Research Project got under way at Central School of Speech and Drama, London. We have just completed the first series of workshops, and it's now time to reflect on the experience, view the videos, and look ahead to the next sessions, which will be taking place in Barcelona in December.
The project is funded as a Creative Fellowship at Central, with project partners such as the Escola de Clown de Barcelona, Madrid International Workshop Festival and the London International Workshop Fetival. As well as the workshops in London and Barcelona over the three-year period, I am planning groups in New York (hopefully in conjunction with the Michael Chekhov Actors Studio) and in St. Petersburg (in collaboration with Pejo Theatre Company).
And so I leave this thread open to anyone, participant or not, to discuss the issues being raised as we begin to get a feel for what this project can be over the coming years.
