<<<Site Responsive Clown Devising>>>

Drop into embodied awareness, explore the natural poetry of the moving body; open up to spontaneity, risk, movement, rhythm, space and flow. After becoming familiar with these elements within our own awareness practice, we'll spill out into the streets of Bristol, expanding our awareness to the body of civilisation, taking inspiration from the poetry of the moving city to inspire our devising.

Back in the rehearsal room, we'll create living, breathing characters inspired by whatever we've discovered out there in the world.

On the second day, we'll take these characters out into the streets of Bristol to interact with the city, the architecture, the people, the animals and the trees. Through each interaction, we'll discover more and more about the character's universe.

Back in the rehearsal room, we'll draw on our discoveries to create short solo performance pieces. They might take the form of a character monologue, a clown numero, a story, a song or a dance, we'll follow our flow to discover.

This workshop is a bespoke one-off, following a request from James Crawley who asked Holly to hold a space where he can continue to explore the devising techniques he picked up in Berlin last summer, when training with LISPA. James is intrigued to fuse his LISPA experiences with Holly's clown pedagogy. We thought other people might want to jump into this work with us, so here is your official invitation!

Holly is excited to have the opportunity to draw on the site-responsive devising process, she developed with Ramshacklicious, the street theatre company she co-founded with her brother. Holly has used aspects of this process in many rehearsal rooms since leaving the company, but this is the first time she's led a workshop that is purely about exploring the process. She's intrigued to find out what it will lead to...

The questions on the application form are designed to help Holly organise a balanced group of participants, taking things like age, performance experience and hopes for the workshop into account to create an optimum learning group.

Although this weekend will be a lot of fun, Holly’s work always has the potential of being very deep, as it’s all about exploring your relationship with presence and connection, which may bring surprising things up to the surface. Holly is a qualified and registered dramatherapist and will make every effort to keep you safe in the work and there will always be an option to sit out of exercises. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to look after yourself. Does this all sound OK to you?
