November 2010 – NY Downtown Clown Revue at Dixon Place

DIXON PLACE

The new home for The New York Downtown Clown Revue.

More commissioned work and a variety of eccentric clowns.

~ ~ ~

Audrey Crabtree

was ask to create a work based on a Thanksgiving dish of Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmellow Topping.

Her act was with one of her fun character ‘Graspy‘.

Arriving on stage with her suitcase and some rough manners.

Once she realizes there is an audience she begins dispersing her ‘home cooked’ meal.

A little coaxing from her gets the audience to give her their possessions.

~~~~~~~

The Amaziny Amy

was commissioned to create a 5 minute act of gratitude and transformation. The act was to follow the guidelines.

Walking on stage with a cane and serious physical discomfort.

After taking off her outdoor garments she loses the head band and tries to pick it up.

Amazing Amy gets herself tied up like a pretzel.

Physical acts of amazement are her trade.

Off the stage with her chair prop and cane.

~~~~~~~

Jonathan Kaplan

performed his whimsical  “Le Fleur” act.

Growing out of the seed into the flower.

He turns into a full fledged ‘rapping’ flower.

“Le Fleur” has an audience member on stage performing. (Anna Zastrow)

A psychedelic ending to a ‘bravura’ performance.

~~~~~~~

New York Downtown Clown INTERN ENSEMBLE

Performing routines created from their classes at the  ‘Slapstick Dojo’.

Summer the Clown flexes her clown muscles.

~~~~~~~

The host Christopher Lueck introduces another act.

~~~~~~~

Mr. Fromage Meets Coccina

A wonderful duet with Peter Daniel Straus and Carol Sirgo.

Mr. Fromage plays the music and makes flowers magically appear.

He has to communicate with Coccina that he doesn’t want to read the letter she has for him.

After reading the letter he realizes it was really bad news and he can’t take it.

Coccina cleans up while Mr. Fromage meditates on the ‘best friends’ last banana.

Finally we discover that his friend (the monkey)isn’t dead. But there are many other wonderful discoveries to be had.

~~~~~~~

Rob Torres

A delightfully simple and funny piece of clowning by Rob Torres finished the evening off.

Greeting the audience was his first task. No problem!

He tied the knot in the rope without touching the rope.
Taking notes on an audience member’s technique on putting on a tie.

Then he proceeded to follow the instructions and tie the tie without touching it! Amazing skill.

Taping up the box with a string attached to make it work the way he wanted it to.

The final moments of a very funny act.

~~~~~~~

Christopher Lueck pops open a bottle of champagne to toast the evening’s talent.

Everyone gets a glass of champagne to celebrate the work.

~~~~~~

Come and see next Month’s Revue.

Check here to see what is going on.
