“Hilary is a master teacher. She creates a safe, playful, fun learning environment for people of all skill levels. I learned a great deal about developing as a clown, connecting to other clowns and the audience. And doing everything with intention and love.” Marian Rich, NYC student.

“Enjoyed the workshop – great, simple, always needed focus on listening for and growing the game WITH your partner FOR the audience. It was a good amount of risk for me too – started safe, got riskier, but never terrifying. Appreciated you framing the “taking steps forward” exercise as hard to do but good to learn from.

Sarah Peterseil – performer and co-founder of Under The Table, Hospital Clown, Big Apple Circus

“That hour with you made ALL the difference. You are an incredible director, and it was such an amazing experience for me to sense immediately your talent and expertise and that I could let go and trust what you had to say.

Big Apple Circus Clown Care – Group Shot – NYC

Quite a few years ago I was hired by the Big Apple Circus to photograph ALL the Clown Care Units.

Seattle

Washington, DC

I did and got some great shots. Here is the one I did on the New York group. See if you know anyone!

NY Clown Care Unit

From the Website:

“Circus Co-Founder Michael Christensen  created the program in 1986 based on his desire to provide a unique service to youngsters undergoing treatment in pediatric facilities. In partnership with a participating hospital’s chief medical and administrative staff, members of the Clown Care team conduct ‘clown rounds,’ their own version of medical rounds, where the healing power of humor is always the prescription.”
