During a recent visit to lovely Toronto I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite women clowns Helen Donnelly. We originally met at the NY Clown Theater Festival in 2012 when she performed her show “Saucisse: A Foo Musical”.
Helen is award-winning professional clown artist: a rare mix of theatrical, circus and therapeutic clown.
She works as a hospital clown in Toronto and has set up a school that prepares clowns to work in the hospital environment. Below is the trailer for her newly produced film “A Therapeutic Clown Emerges”. A documentary of the process she went through to find a new clown partner.
