Audrey Crabtree – “One of Us! A Bouffon Emersion” workshop – 2012 NY Clown Theatre Festival

The workshop description read:

“Spend two days embedded in the world of the bouffon! Learn to translate your observations and frustration with society, systems, and stereotypes into playful dynamic theater work. Through pre-table work and physical play you will develop a unique core character from the inside out. Working in packs you will practice the skills, tools, and tactics of bouffon and begin to find your endless voice. Come to birth a new character or deepen an existing bouffon. Be prepared to move, play hard, and become ONE OF US!”

I arrived on the 2nd day of the workshop and the workshop participants were already preparing themselves for an improv. I was able to capture a series of trios and got a wonderful group shot.
