The Funny-Last Laugh Clown Master Class (Spain) Sep 2-Oct 6
Posted May 25, 2019
Nouveau Clown Institute and Centre Civic Drassanes in association with Jango Edwards present: “The Funny - Last Laugh Clown Master Class"

Classes will be in English, French, Spanish, and Russian with translations.

Those of you who have clown or comedy routines, stage acts, or numbers that you would like to perform in the weekly Cabaret Cabron productions, please bring those items required to present your act including music, props, and costumes. A maximum of no more than three acts from your repertory is advised.

We also recommend that you bring any audio/ video material of your work which can be viewed by members of the faculty to assist us in directing you.

In addition to your in-class sessions, you will receive selected data-based materials. It is a mandatory request that you bring with you a pen drive or memory stick in which this data can be stored. This information will be a useful reference in the future once you have successfully completed the master class and graduated from The Nouveau Clown Institute, that is if you graduate!

The Instructors
The master class sessions are held over five consecutive weeks conducted by a team of international master instructors and additional specialized tutors from our permanent N.C.I. faculty.
Every class is completely unique in content, instruction and information.

Confirmed master instructors:
Nola Rae-England, Ira Seidenstein-Australia, Knut Ostradal-Norway, Jango Edwards-U.S.A., Claudia Cantone-Italy, and Dr. Dam Mad, Andreas Squaretoes The Fools Brothers-Austria.
(Additional instructors will be announced in the future)

About N.C.I.
The master class is for professional clown artists to learn, teach and exchange creative ideas with each other; a school where new actors have the opportunity for direct contact with master instructors, daily exposure to assorted technique and production skills, and an understanding of the comic formulas that make comedy and clowning function in all environments. This event is created for all members of the nouveau clown community to operate and serve as a launching pad for actors to become familiar with the variety of clown artists and schools that specialize in comedy and the art of clown.

Finally and most importantly, it is the wishes of the N.C.I. staff to make your visit as creative, productive, and inspiring as possible. To achieve this we remind you that this is an educational institution of the highest standards, and if you come with open mind and open heart then we will open the door for you to a new future.

This year the last week is dedicated exclusively to the production of the original numbers that the artists in training want to create under the direction of Jango Edwards.
