– Ann Dargies

“It is through the body that a clown speaks, and it is through an actress voice and soul that a clown delivers expression.”

In desperate times, being a clown is an attitude and a game at the same time. Clown means many things, it means respect and attentiveness, it means an absolute openness at the moment of encounter. Audré Lorde left us with the idea of testing connectedness in times of hopelessness despite all differences, of facing it and confronting it through coming-together gestures. Are you excited by this challenge? – If so, let’s do it! Let’s dedicate ourselves to this cause, let’s approach being a clown and let’s go into the public space and create a connection with our gestures!
