Experience Opportunity

The Clown

Launching in January 2023, a new part-time professional short course open to anyone aged 18+, created and taught by award-winning theatre company Rhum + Clay and delivered at Fourth Monkey’s Drama School centres in London and Bristol, The Clown is an exciting new creative programme which explores Clowning as a theatrical and artistic discipline through a real world, industry-reflective lens.

This 6-month short course runs from January to August and meets weekly during term time (Wednesday evenings – London, Saturday mornings - Bristol). The course has been designed to mirror Rhum + Clay’s creative and rehearsal process, and participants will experience full company R&D processes including character development, ensemble movement and relationship building.

As an integral part of the course, there are plenty of opportunities for performance, including regular scratch nights, a Devising Intensive and a final showcase performance as the culmination of training, open to an audience of friends and family.

No previous clown training or experience is necessary, but participants need to be aged 18 and over, and prepared to be open, curious, and playful during sessions and committed to attending all classes.
