One part online physical theatre workshop, one part talk: come for one or stay for both!
On Purim the world is turned upside down. Wise folk become fools, and fools can be wise. On this day, Yelala will be diving deep into the world of the clown in jewish tradition, in the very fine company of queer jewish clown, Danielle Levsky. In Clown Spiel, you’ll learn about the history and the role of the Clown in Jewish tradition in a two-part, interactive, and fun online course.
Danielle (she/her) is a Post-Soviet, Jewish, and queer clown, writer, instructor, and producer who seeks to bring more discovery, wonder, joy, and truth into the world.
She is a certified clown teacher (The Clown School) and has taught classes in San Diego, Chicago, and in the virtual world. Prior to gaining her certification, she trained with teachers from Cirque du Soleil, Theater Unspeakable, the Neo-Futurists, Viola Spolin’s improvisational technique, the Ringling Brothers, and Commedia dell'arte master Antonio Fava.
