Personal Clown Class with George Lewis in Seattle at Freehold -
This class is an approach to character that involves taking the part of oneself that is most uncomfortable, and expanding it to the ridiculous. It is an in-depth investigation into that deeper source of comedy: the tragedy of the character's failure. This work emphasizes physical articulation and expansion of the actor's every impulse and serves as an introduction into elements of physical comedy. The process is readily applicable to any role one may play as a way of discovering whole other dimensions of character.
