• Online, Group Experience on Zoom

    Dates:  5, 12, 19 & 26 November 2023 Time:  17:00 - 19:30 (Germany time) Location Online at TuT Clownschule Level: Clowning experience required Facilitator: Caroline Dream REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP AT THIS LINK: www.das-tut.de/de/programm/2023/11/05/clowns-cross-the-line-online-4242


    Clowns have never allowed themselves to be held back by the invisible lines that direct us to snip, chip, rip and zip up our personal freedoms. They refuse to package themselves in neat little boxes with “I am a perfect person” written in bold at the front. Why worry about what other people may think of them? Why observe etiquette, form a part of the moral majority or pretend that everything is fine when the alternative is so refreshing and comical? In this workshop, you'll be asked to cross the social lines, giving full reign to the self that is unconstrained, uninhibited, and unhampered by convention. Amongst other outrageous things, you'll be invited to confess your faults and failings, share family secrets, insult people behind their backs or to their faces, spread false rumours, open other people's mail, steal from your housemates, exhibit shocking behaviour and swindle the audience. AND take pleasure in it all! Over the course of 4 weeks, we'll get into all the essential details of how to get the most comedy out of breaking the social rules and unearth any conditioning that may be hampering your inner state of freedom. You'll be encouraged to take bold risks in your improvisations, which will undoubtedly result in awkward situations... just so you that can then tap into your genius and your charm! This workshop requires a basic level of clown and a willingness to unlock those magical qualities within… authenticity, creativity, passion, integrity and humour.

    How to playfully express all your wonderful stupidity in ever more comic ways Clowns recognize that human stupidity is too interesting, far-reaching, and comical to ignore. In fact, being so prevalent, it's incredible that intellectuals have passed up the opportunity to study it thoroughly. Clowns have not! They've delved into its many facets and become experts at looking like an idiot, but with a comic wisdom that is altogether enlightening. In this workshop, we will cover the most common silly human behaviors. You will be encouraged to use your bodies, voices, knowledge and beliefs to highlight the absurd, illogical, incoherent and contradictory nature of so many human thoughts and actions. Throughout, we will seek to appreciate, encourage and applaud our own stupidity so that it comes to the surface more freely and opens the floodgates of laughter. "To avoid the appearance of stupidity, people are willing to remain stupid." Alice Walker Bypassing the social stigma associated with stupidity (which only serves to make us embarrassed and unconscious of its true effects) has many beneficial side effects. An important one is to broaden your understanding of what is, and what is not, important to control. Some foolish behaviors are obviously harmful and must be mastered; others are pure nonsense, which we can enjoy and share. This is a workshop for you if you wish to:
    • Revise the most notable ridiculous behaviors of the professional idiot.
    • Discover more ways to be comically stupid.
    • Become more audacious, spontaneous and creative.
    • Experience the pleasure of idiotic freedom.

  • Private Clown Coaching with Caroline Dream

    A detonator to release, stimulate and enhance your clowning abilities. A genuine catalyst for your clown.

    Are you in need of help? Motivation? Inspiration? A kick up the arse? Do you want to work with Caroline but can't find a workshop that suits your timetable? Would you like to receive some personalised laser-coaching, tailored to your clown needs or desires? Do you have an idea you'd like to develop?

    Take a Clown Catalyst Online clown coaching sessions, absolutely personalized and adapted to any level. What to expect Honest feedback, guidance in the areas you need to work on, an eagle eye for details and of course, fun.

    The sessions will be very much like a clown class but 100% focused on YOU and your needs. She will ask you to improvise, give you ideas and feedback, and work with the material you have prepared between sessions.

    *The session can be recorded for your exclusive and personal use only. This is a great way to re-inforce the learning process, see for yourself what works and remember the points covered. Commitment Caroline recommends you commit to 4 sessions over a 4 week period. Each session will be 1h. You'll agree on a day and time that suits. Obviously, if you have an emergency or know at least 48hs in advance that you won't be able to make the session, it can be re-scheduled.

    Your homework (if you want it) will be to prepare a sketch around an idea she gives you or your own ideas (you decide). You will have to send her the video of your improvisation 24hs before the next programmed session.


    • a laptop with a camera or, failing that, a tablet with a camera (if you have an external webcam that sends a higher quality image than the computer’s camera, all the better).
    • internet connection
    • a free account on Zoom.us
    • a private space to work in. Ideally, a clear working area of approximately 2 x 2 meters that is within the viewing angle of the camera. Outside that area, you should have some space at least on one side so that you can make exits and entrances into the area (that is, you can “leave camera” at least on one side) . Don’t worry about curtains, sofas, shelves with things on them, etc in the background … these can often be used advantageously during the class ;o)
    • adequate lighting (frontal) so that I can see you well (please avoid bright lights behind you, such as windows, etc)

    What did they say?

    Comment Individual Clown Coaching Caroline was full of ideas, supportive, encouraging, and provided resources and homework to keep me going in between sessions.  I went from a vague idea to having a structure of a show with a world of possibilities!

    I lost all self-consciousness and just bared my soul and funny bone with her. She revealed gifts in me that I didn’t know I had. If you want a coach who offers clown inspiration, humor, fun, personalized positive critiques, challenges, modeling, classical instruction and brainstorming, then Caroline Dream is just for you.

    Caroline helped me put my doubts aside, to just go for it! And in just four sessions (with their corresponding homework of course), I now have my own clown number, to present in public!

    Comment Individual Clown Coaching Caroline's gift of guiding me, through encouragement and positive input, has helped me identify the essence of my clown; an enormous aid in developing my work.

  • Looking for a director for your clown number or show?

    Caroline offers online direction sessions (with the possibility of finishing the piece in-person before the show's premiere). She'll help you develop an idea, create scenes that are playful, logical and funny, and reach your deadline on time!

    The creation process

    Caroline will work with you on defining the central idea for your number or show: the who, what and why from which all other ideas can emerge with ease. She'll then place at your service her vast experience both in clown creation and inspiring hilarious improvisations to guide you towards a finished product. Caroline believes that creation processes should be fun. She'll get you to play; and use your imagination, your innate and acquired talents and the things that truly move you. It'll be an interesting journey that will require your commitment to do the work, but will not expect more of you than you can give.

    What to expect

    Each session lasts 1 hour. You will also be given assignments to prepare before the following session; such as improvising a scene, writing the script, rehearsing the dialogue or action, finding props or pieces of music, etc. The sessions will be recorded for your exclusive and private use. This is an important tool that will allow you to see for yourself what works, and remember the action that was blocked during the session. In addition, it will help you remember and script any dialogue. You will be asked to download these videos within 48hs and upload them to a Drive file you have shared with Caroline. These files will need to be titled with the session number and information that will make their content easily identifiable.

    Your commitment

    You will be asked to commit to and pay for at least the first 4 sessions, which Caroline recommends be held over a period of 4 consecutive weeks. The day and time that best suits you both will be agreed upon together. Clown numbers can usually be created in 4 to 8 sessions. Clown shows may take between 12 and 20 sessions to complete (depending on the time you give to rehearsal between the sessions). If you have an emergency or notify at least 72 hours in advance that you will not be able to attend the session, the date can be changed without charge.
