    The treasure of pleasure The extraordinary benefits of showing your pleasure and having fun In general, becoming an adult reduces our ability to hear the call of pleasure and to express the joy we’re feeling, especially in situations where we are not expected or supposed to do so. Clowns, on the other hand, not only hear that call but heed it, no matter what the circumstances, openly relishing all the delicious sensations for the benefit of their audience. As clowns then, we have to reverse any ingrained habits of suppression so as to never be at a loss as to how to answer the all important question: “What do I want to do now?” Through listening to, and following our desire for fun and joy, without a doubt, we’ll end up in surprisingly comic places. In this Masterclass, we'll dust off your pleasure compass so you know exactly where your needle is pointing at all times. I will invite you to enjoy publicly, not only the pleasant surprises and strokes of fortune; but also your evil plans, your superior capabilities, your irrepressible sensuality and your amazing ability to fool, swindle or cheat others. You’ll also see how opening the tap on happiness expands the emotion in all directions, within yourself and within your audience.

    During the workshop we will not be able to help you if you have technical problems, that's why...
    • If you have never used Zoom, do a test video conference with a friend or family member.
    • Also check the audio. Zoom has allows you to check the audio. By clicking on the arrow next to the Zoom microphone button, a menu will open. Look for the "Test audio" section.
    • Use this link to find all kinds of help on how to use Zoom.
    Some tips to optimise your internet connection
    • If you can connect by cable, it will be better than via wifi.
    • Before the start of the workshop, check that your internet connection works well. Restarting the router by unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds usually increases the speed if you haven't restarted it for a while.
    • Disconnect the Wi-Fi from all your other devices (mobiles, tablets, tv's, etc.)
    • Ask the people who live with you not to use the internet during the workshop hours, especially Netflix, YouTube and the like.
     
  • 2022 SUNDAY MORNING SERIES: "CROSS THE LINE" WITH CAROLINE DREAM

    Register for the workshop on theclownschool.com Online, Group Experience on Zoom Dates February 6 - 27, SUNDAYS ONLY Times 10am-1pm PST / 11am-2pm MST / Noon-3pm CST / 1pm-4pm EST - THIS CLASS IS OFFERED AT A SUITABLE TIME FOR PARTICIPANTS IN EUROPE! Location Wherever you are! Instructor Caroline Dream Cost $275 (about 235€) Following her wonderful Rebel Clown class, the amazing Caroline Dream is back with a brand new class! CROSS THE LINE

    Following her wonderful Rebel Clown and Clown Conflicts classes, the amazing Caroline Dream is back with a brand new class!

    Beef up your bold, brazen and blatantly besmirching behavior in Cross the Line!

    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 rumors, open other people's mail, steal from your housemates, exhibit shocking behavior and swindle the audience. AND take pleasure in it all!

    Over the course of 4 weeks, we'll get into the nitty gritty 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 humor.
