Walter Anichhofer (AT): A Taste Of Clown Workshop
► 3 Days of Clown-Discovery with Walter Anichhofer (Austria) ◄
Research on one’s own clown begins by looking for one’s own ridiculous and silly side. Unlike in commedia dell’arte, there is no preestablished character to support the actor, so he or she has to discover the clown part within him- or herself.
Walter Anichhofer studied at the International Theatre School of Jacques Lecoq in Paris. He worked for over 20 years with Theater YBY creating most of all clownish physical theatre. He is currently teaching at the Athanor Academy in Passau, Germany, where he has been working alongside David Esrig for almost 20 years.
