The introductory course “Serious play: Clowns and Trickery 1” gives the opportunity to playfully experience and discover your own individual clown figure and looks for, besides pure naivety, pleasure and playfulness. We will work with the performers’ expression,  presence and contact, that will train the awareness and feelings of the moment, in order to “be” explicit and emotionally transparent on stage and to be able to share what the clown experiences. Accentuating our own qualities and flaws will be stimulated, so we can use them to serve our clownery.

Mag. Christoph Schiele is a visual and performing artist, who lives in Vienna and works with and in various formations internationally. He studies at the École internationale de théâtre LASSAAD and will finish the new circus form “Magie Nouvelle” at Centre National des Arts du Cirque (France) as the first artist living in Austria in January 2021. His first contact with clownery happened exactly 20 years ago and since then he’s been burning for this special art form. Until spring 2020 he worked for CliniClowns Austria. With his Cie Filou he presented his second solo programme using the style of “Nouveau Cirque” in April 2021; this time specifically for children from 5 yo.
