1 p.m. too 4 p.m. Free. CLOWN NOSE WORKSHOP with Cheryl Ann Sanders. Valencia East Campus Building 3 Main Atrium/Lobby. To clown… or not to clown… that is the question. Clown nose can be a great tool for any actor who is processing a scene, character, or any physical choices. Comedy is one of the hardest crafts to master. Why? Because we try too hard! What is funny? There are moments that make us laugh every day, and they usually stem from the most ordinary and simplistic acts. Learn how the clown nose can help you identify the most honest moments, connect directly with your audience, obtain a greater sense of timing, and gift you with a sense of safety as you embrace the absurdity and vulnerability of life. Details and Requirements: • participants should arrive early and be physically warm to start class on time • long hair should be pulled back and secured away from the face • clothing should be void of any logos or lettering, preferably solid black, well fitting but unrestrictive, and depending on the classroom • pictures, video, and note taking is both allowed and encouraged, but please silence phones • participants will be led through a series of exercises both individually and as small groups • participants will be asked to go beyond their comfort zones • there is no right and wrong • all supplies and props will be provided but must be returned.
