Dynamics of Bouffon with Eric Davis
Time & Location
About the Event
Instructor: Eric Davis
Can you hear it? The trickster in you is crying out! Unleash your inner Bouffon in an explosion of fun that turns life’s sh*t into comedy gold.
What are Bouffons? Imagine a pack of outsiders so funny, charming and clever that we allow them to make fun of us until.... well, until it hurts.
The need for social satire has never been stronger. More than a style, bouffon is a way of working.
In this 5 hour class, we cover:
What is the Bouffon Territory?
Essential attitudes of the Bouffon
Mischievous pleasure to mock
Lines, boundaries & the edge of comfort.
All for fun & fun for all!
November 13th 5-730pm (CET) AND November 14th 5-730PM (CET)
