Clown is a profound form of theatre. It reveals (mostly through humor) the deeply shared humanity of our experience of the world. But exposure to Clown in the United States is limited, so we often miss the subtleties and brilliance of this art form. Join Liars & Believers’ (LAB) Artistic Director, Jason Slavick, for a brief introduction to Clown.
Jason Slavick is a director/writer who founded the LAB after directing in Boston for a decade. Originally from a little farm town in New Jersey, Jason has been in Cambridge for… a long while. Though his training was directing Shakespeare, Jason got hooked by the magic of puppetry, dance, masks, music, and the joy of physical bodies moving in space. Aside from making theatre, he’s constantly cooking, so every LAB company dinner is an adventure. Jason loves playing with other people and skirting just along the edge of trouble. And deep down he’s actually a dog – a lab (no pun intended).
This is a 1-hour workshop on Thursday, August 12, 2021 from 6:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m. in Bicentennial Park, appropriate for all ages and its FREE!
