Physical Expression in Comedy


March 9-10

Register online

Explore range and depth of emotion, and how to convey those states using the body. Posture, gesture, breath, point of focus: how do these correlate with puppetry? Mooky shares some rules of comedy and tips on trips, slips and falls, both Physically and Metaphysically.

A natural and experienced teacher, Mooky’s generosity, enthusiasm for the form and genuine affection for communion make training a positive and memorable experience for aspiring clowns. Mooky was lead clown in Cirque du Soleil’s Varekai, and has taught clown, character, slapstick and physical comedy at the Dell’Arte School of Physical Theatre, the San Francisco Circus School and in countless workshops.  Space is extremely limited.
