Eccentric Performing
with Avner the Eccentric

A Unique Blend of New and Old Sept 1st through Sept. 7th,2019
Located at Chumleighland in the Woods on Camano Island

Eccentric Performing is one of the most personal and paradoxical of theater forms: It can be ingenious
or dim-witted, skillful or blundering. It can have a sharp verbal wit or be completely silent. It can
be extremely silly while pointing out the failure of society. Above all Eccentric Performing is funny!
Open to performers (and non-performers) of all abilities, this workshop explores bare-bones, red-nosed
clowning in the search for the personal Eccentric performer. We will work with students individually
and in groups to investigate clown personae. Relationship to the audience as complicit partner, use of
audience volunteers, and applications of clowning to other forms of theater are of special interest.
The daily routine includes movement, technique, improv, assigned themes to prepare outside of class,
and nightly sessions devoted to critiquing existing work.

Class size is LIMTED TO 15. Are you a RETURNING STUDENT, duo, Troupe or Group? Email us for info on discounts.
