CLOWN CONFLICTS
How to get clown mileage from your daily struggles
At the heart of every hilarious clown routine lies a conflict: rivalry, misunderstandings, physical ineptitude, invasions of personal space, personality clashes, split emotions, outbursts, competition for the limelight, trouble with the boss, etc. The conflicts clowns struggle with aren’t unknown to us, but their attitude towards them, and the playful extremes to which they take them, are certainly less common. As with everything else, clowns add to the mix their enjoyment of the moment. They’ll turn any kind of conflict into an opportunity to demonstrate their talent for making things worse before making them better.

In this workshop, we’ll explore the struggles of our precarious human existence from a clown perspective, highlighting our sublime stupidity and celebrating our incredible inventiveness. Over the course of 4 weeks, you’ll be invited to lose control over your vying emotions, sacred notions, unfriendly attitudes, wayward limbs and changeable environment. You’ll be guided on how to avoid resolving the conflicts until you’ve got all the comic mileage out of them you can, and encouraged to find ever more ingenious ways to settle the dispute or conclude the action.
This workshop requires a basic level of clown and a willingness to reveal the hilarious truth of your own imperfection and life’s complexity.

Of British origin (but now Spanish), Caroline Dream has lived in Barcelona since 1989. She trained at Fooltime Circus School (Bristol, England) and refined her education with teachers including Dario Fo, Nola Rae, Michel Dallaire, Eric de Bont, Avner The Eccentric, Bim Mason, David Glass, and Carlo Bosso). Since 1985, she has performed in festivals and theaters throughout Spain with her shows “Footless” and “Just Say Yes!”, and with Alex Navarro in “Niu Adventurs”, as well as throughout Europe with “Primigenio” with Cia. Teatro de Pronto. She has taught clown courses since 1998, throughout Spain, and internationally in Las Vegas (U.S.A., for Cirque du Soleil artists), New York, Portugal, Germany, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Peru, Mexico and Colombia. By 2018 she has taught more than 250 courses for over 4000 students. She also teaches Corporate Clown Training workshops. Her book, The Clown In You, has become a reference in the world of clown and clown pedagogy (info at www.theclowninyou.com). The book is also available in Spanish El Payaso Que Hay En Ti, and Portuguese, O palhaço que existe em você. In 2020, she published her second clowning manual, Clown Yourself, which has also been translated into Spanish under the title, Apayásate.
