London Clown Festival
London Clown Festival is a festival of physical comedy and clown influenced contemporary performance. Exploring what clown is to the modern performer and their audiences.
In recent years there has been upsurge in comedy and theatre of performers who have been influenced by the teachings of Lecoq and Gaulier many of whom have gone on to become celebrated award winning artists. However, Clown remains an enigma to the general public who often have little understanding of the form beyond the stereotypical image of the clown as found in circus performance, red nose, big shoes and a squirty flower.
So much so that Clown now has become a somewhat maligned word and performers are reluctant to identify themselves as Clowns.
The influence of Clown is found everywhere once you know what to look for with performers as diverse as Tommy Cooper, Charlie Chaplin, Sasha Baron Cohen (Ali G, Borat), French and Saunders and Rowan Atkinson (Mr Bean) amongst many that use clowning in their performances.
We at London Clown Festival program an exciting, inspiring and eclectic mix of current performers who embody the principals of this timeless art form. In doing so we hope to share the joy and exhilaration of Clown with a wide breadth of audiences both young and old. Helping to alter the image of Clown in the public consciousness.
