Masterclass in Parody and Clown for Burlesque Performers with Liz Skitch

Burlesque = an absurd or comically exaggerated imitation of something; a parody

In this intensive one-day clowning workshop designed specifically for Burlesque Performers, Liz Skitch will introduce participants to the basic rules of clowning, how to utilise these to build routines, breathe new life into existing routines and to enhance your relationship with the audience. Participants will have the chance to experience exercises in physical comedy that teach sensitivity, naivety, complicite and improvisation.

Suitable for novice and professional performers alike.
