Why Theatre and Clowning ?

Improvisation is a playful, spontaneous, creative and mostly funny dramatic art form that will help you develop communication skills, interpersonal skills and your ability to be creative on the spot.

Above all, it will let your imagination soar.  

With the help of some silly games, fun stories, some red noses and lots of things to laugh about, you will be encouraged to have some fun, find your inner silly and learn the art of making up stuff (like excuses, problems, their solutions, stories and much nonsense).

Course Breakdown

At the end of the course children will create a theatre performance and showcase it

This Immersive offering is for you:
