Zeit: 20.03.2021 13:30
Raum: Schule

Clowning is a classical field of social circus. You enjoy and you show it to others. You laugh with yourself, and you make others laugh. Clowning supports relationships and optimism and it is a great tool of social work. In this workshop we will shortly meet the theory of clowning as a part of social circus and then learn some of the basics of clowning, and the associated techniques. It will surely be fun! Our social circus trainers Konstantina Goutsika, Aliki Batsaki and Alberto Pérez López are youth and play workers and educators, who live and work in Thessaloniki, Greece. For many years they have been involved in projects of social circus and are very happy to spread the message of the power and potentials of social circus for participation of children and young people! They organize this workshop together with the European Playwork Association (e.p.a.), an international Network of youth and community initiatives.
