In the MakingLevel 2 Bouffon: how to build a Bouffon piece

For the first time, we’re offering an advanced Bouffon series. YES!!

The Bouffons seduce the audience and hold a mirror to the underbelly of human greed, power, sexuality. How do they speak such truth to power and make us laugh at the same time?

In this series, first we’ll address who’s in the room to set a foundation to play and then dig into the Bouffons realm. We’ll improvise with children’s play to explore different logics and rhythms, design grotesque masks, and engage with a creative process to collectively unleash folly and fun.

Be ready to be challenged, to shake your own ground, and to find the freedom to let go: you will be magnifique!

Tuesdays Jan 18, 25, Feb 1 and 8 from 7-10pm 

Space Molloy in January, 520 8th Ave in February

Cost to participate: sliding scale, you chose between $200-350. 

You must have bouffon experience to participate in the advanced series.
