Physical Comedy Duos and Trios Workshop

Apr. 27, 2019

Saturday 2-8 P.M.

92 St Y, 1395 Lexington Ave.

Intensive Workshop with Actor Sean A. Mulvihill (The Exuberant Theatre Company)

Learn the principles of duos and trios for theatrical clown (e.g. Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton) as well as composition techniques for creating group clown routines.

The theatrical clown, like the baby, is an enigma, and fascinating to watch. The adult actor though, unlike the infant, has learned to repress capriciousness, impulsiveness, and ambiguity. The adult theatrical clown must learn to re-create this sensation of ambiguity through technique.

This workshop will focus on playing the two types of clowns: White and Red. The White is usually smart and strict (but gullible), and the Red is stupid and easily distracted. Their competition for status makes us laugh as they continually one-up one another.

The first part of the workshop we will play games that explore these qualities of white and red. The second part will involve composition exercises and performance.

Actor Sean A. Mulvihill holds an MFA in Physical Theatre from the Accademia dell’Arte in Arezzo, Italy. He toured two years in Italy with Turin-based physical and musical theatre company, Action Theatre, and has studied clown with Teatro C’Art (Andre Casaca, Castelfiorentino, Italy), Atelier Teatro Fisico Philip Radice (Turin, Italy), and Familie Floz (Bjorn Leese, Berlin, Germany). Sean’s solo clown show, Velo, premiered at the Rooted Moon International Theatre Festival in Sardegna, Italy in July 2016. Watch “Velo” at: www.seanamulvihill.com/velo
