To Laugh or not To Laugh? – Artist Day

21.07.19 11am 6 hours FREE Workshop


Friday Flop invites you to join us for a day of practical workshops, discussions and experiments. Friday Flop is about clowning research into laughter response and using workshop training exercises to make theatre.

We have loads of questions – We guess you do, too – Maybe we can answer each other’s questions?

Questions like:

  • How to reproduce on the stage the best shit you came up with while devising, training or rehearsing?
  • How to keep the bad shit (fears, stress, habits) out of the way and just engage with audiences in the way you want?
  • How can we turn exercises into performance? Bring your exercises!

We’ll spend the day exploring these questions through

  • Workshops
  • Discussions
  • Experiments and yet to be imagined ways of sharing

The day is open to anyone who finds these questions interesting, whether you use clowning or not. And it’s free of charge. Plus: if you learn nothing, you’ll get a full refund.

If you would like to participate, please let us know by emailing Jon Davison here: info@jondavison.net
