Clown workshop

Clown workshop

From 6 to 10 and 13 to 17 June 2016:
For adults (18-77 years old)

When one asks me: "What’s a clown?"... I say a clown they feels good, he feels good, he’s intelligent, he knows things, it is very sensitive... I am trying to describe a human being. A clown is like us: the same problems, the same desires, the same joys, he’s the same. They have the same feelings, the same passions, the same loves, the same disappointments, just like us. Unless they have a snitch like that! Mario Gonzalez
Registration deadline: April 6, 2016.
