Work

Impro Clown workshop -Beloved on Stage-

What makes an actor loved by the audience?

It is an actor who shows everything to the audience. They respect, support, and love actors who have the courage to do so.

However, actors try to hide themselves as much as possible in front of the audience. Especially, they don't want to show their embarrassing parts or their failed scenes.

In this workshop, you will actually experience and accept how much those parts of yourself that you don't want to show are loved, and break out of your shell as an actor.

A clown is someone who is laughed at, but for a clown, laughter is love. Let's get lots of love and grow together, as actors and as human beings!

*Basically, the workshop will be conducted in Japanese, but English will be used in places.
