Benefit event @ Corner Cafe in Durban.jpg

Ever wanted to learn to be funny?


Clowns without Borders South Africa (CWBSA) are looking for a range of artists wanting to develop their clowning skills and social upliftment engagement through an intensive 3 day workshop.


The workshop, generously subsidised by the National Lottories Commision, will be led by our Artistic Director, Jayne Batzofin. Having 7 years of experience developing her clowning pedagogy, ranging from the circus, to theatrical, to hospital clowns; Jayne loves these intensive play sessions.


The workshop will cover the basics of theatrical clowning as well as the methodology behind the work of Clowns without Borders South Africa.


No previous clowning experience is required, however participants must have an invested interest in a performance field e.g.: music, singing, dancing, circus, acting, and storytelling.


At the end of the workshop, all participants will be placed onto the CWBSA Artist database and certain individuals may be approached to participate in our Northern Cape Tour from 15 August – 2 September 2016.


Bookings will be required, as space is limited.
