Discovering CLOWNGYM was a delightful revelation for me, especially after years of photographing numerous clown performances. It brought immense joy to learn about an organization solely dedicated to the fascinating world of clowning.
CLOWNGYM, initiated by Julia Proctor in 2014, has become a thriving hub for enthusiasts of the clowning ‘genre.’ The organization goes beyond conventional boundaries, offering a diverse range of activities that include classes, workshops, open mics for new material, and captivating performances. It’s heartening to witness the commitment to nurturing creativity and expression within the community of physical performers.
As a testament to their involvement, CLOWNGYM is actively co-producing the upcoming ‘PHYSFESTNYC,’ further solidifying its role in fostering a vibrant space for physical performers to explore and showcase their talents. In a world that often underestimates the profound artistry of clowning, CLOWNGYM stands as a beacon of celebration and support for this unique and captivating form of expression.
