What makes a great clown?
How do you create a show, hold an audience and get them to stay?

Starting with rhythm and play, participants will quickly discover the
joys of seriously clowning around in a practical workshop that shows you how to build material into comic routines.

Topics covered will include working the audience, developing style, directing and object theatre. Clowns on film will provide an additional feature to the class plus if time allows there will be an opportunity to show work to an invited audience.

Fraser is a popular clown teacher at circus schools and theatre festivals worldwide.

Originally from London he was for twelve years the regular clown tutor at The National School for Circus Arts in Hoxton.
He specialises in rhythm and play and concentrates on devising and teaching directing methods that help students give
effective feedback. As an accomplished director he has created award winning shows with clowns, street performers, actors and puppeteers all over Europe, Australasia and Canada. Now based in
New Zealand as well as his continued international touring commitments he is a guest lecturer on the circus degree programme at Te Auaha in Wellington.

“I learnt more about stage craft in his workshop than I'd learnt in years of training, Fraser Hooper is brilliant.” — Suzanne Andrade, 1927, UK

“Fraser delivers clearly and with much joy, the principles
and practices that make his own work as a clown so
brilliant. I came away with solid tools for creation and
performance that will have a positive impact on my own work
for years to come." — Pete Sweet USA

«Fantastically helpful, fun, inventive and silly, just what I needed.»
— Miss Behave, UK

“I didn't hate it." — Victor Rubilar, Argentina
