To take this course, you will need to have done either this year's Level 1 (see the RSI week one course "Courage to Be—A Clowning Course") or a similar course.
This Level 2 course continues the Level 1 work offering further practice of clowning with the focus on structure and relationship. The more demanding aspects of this level come from a need to practice responsiveness to, and awareness of, your partner on stage, your audience and the images, stories and characters that emerge during improvisation.
Our work will bring greater insights into the techniques of improvisation and performance and it will be a step toward Social Clowning and the Facilitator's Training planned for 2011. For more information please visit, nosetonose.info
