Clown course - the look of the clown


Klovnekursus

Coming up a new course. 14. & 15. October 2017: LO SGUARDO DEL CLOWN The look of the clown - an intensive Theatre-clown course

To be a clown and more than anything to live as a clown, is somehow the essence of doing theatre and it helps us to listen to the vital part of ourselves, our own life processes, at the scene, in the theatre in our lives every day, where we get closer to our instinct to play, to our fears, our fragile parts and our strengths.

The look of the Clown is a part of the game and the exploration and the intensive moment. An intensive course with a focus on presence, body, voice and mimic, to get to know and to approach the extraordinary about being a clown.

Clown course - in the nature


Resistance - illustration

In an ongoing colaboration with Antoine Innocente, we are arranging clown courses. Courses about training the body and voice - and presence - training both for the artist or the teacher, who would like to get to know oneself and his or her strengths better through theatre and clown techniques, and for the person wanting to find his or her inner clown.
Read more about our courses by clicking here and more to come about our ideas for why we are fascinated by the clown.

New course: Resistance - at play


Resistance - illustration
Emily Ball
Floating World - Learning to swim

We are happy to be able to use the piece by Emily Ball, Floating World - Learning to swim - as an illustration for a course about resistance to learning. We have used this artpiece as an illustration because it brings various interpretations, just like resistance to learning can have many explications and nuances. It brings associations to individuals being in a world in constant movement, like liquid that is a substance that constantly moves. In a world today that is very different from the world 50 years ago, which makes learning a more complex proces - because norms and rules constantly change, amongst other things. This fact also requieres new skills of the educator or teacher that has to teach how to navigate this world. Not an easy task.
Read more about the course (in Danish) under courses.
Emily Ball is a director of a contemporary Painting and Drawing School in West Sussex. See more here: www.emilyballatseawhite.co.uk or www.emilyball.net.

Intercultural communication course at IUT, Angers, France

We were in Angers (Institute Universitaire de Technologie) in France teaching 5 classes of students how to analyze different groups and their intercultural communication, in meetings, when negotiating, or collaborating. We used their bodies as research objects, while looking for opportunities and openings presented in cultural meetings. This was a rewarding, fun, and inspiring week on a personal level.

Forumplay in Argentina


foro de juego

We highly recommend forumplay, a training tecnique that we offer as a tool to work deeper with the content learned (for instance, new comunication strategies), and it is highly relevant as a tool to deal with situations that can be difficult or to prepare for a new situation (for instance how to fill out a new role as a leader managing a new group). We work around the most important themes, creating scenarios with the participants that are close to real-life, and work on how to respond to them in new ways using all the human resources; ideas and input, and experiences of the participants.

At the moment, we have an event in Buenos Aires on the 25. of march, and other events are coming up.

We are happy to write that we are in the process of testing a 3D digital learning prototype tool! We have, for the past year, been collaborating with Oligo Academy in the creation of a 3D virtual world as a new platform for learning.

Here, a picture from the workshop where 54 students from 5.th and 6th grade were testing the concept. They were engaged and had fun, while learning about different types of energies and how to save the earth. This is what we are aiming for.

CHANCEPARTOUT IN ARGENTINA

Forum Play at a primary school
Irazusta, Argentina.

El martes, la semana pasada, discutimos "bullying" en una escuela secundaria en Irazusta, Entre Ríos, Argentina. Los adolescentes crearon dos situaciones de su realidad y lo presentaron a sus compañeros y a partir de allí discutimos diferentes maneras de actuar cuando se es víctima de bullying. Por ejemplo, que se puede responder cuando uno llama "negro" o "gordo" a otro/a. Ejercitamos diferentes ideas para analizar y neutralizar dichos comportamientos usando las situaciones que habían creado. En este secundario había una necesidad de hablar sobre las experiencias que tenian los alumnos sobre el "bullying" y grupalmente eschucharse y compartir sus problemas.

Last Tuesday, we discussed bullying with a group of twelve teenagers in the secondary school in Irazusta, Entre Rios, using the method forum play. We played games and made two short pieces of theater showing bullying, and then we tried out different ways to react and respond to it. For instance, when someone calls you "fat" or "negro", what do you say? or what to do when someone puts a nude picture up of you on Facebook? It was the first time these kids played this type of game and some were shy at first. Others tried to bully, while discussing bullying, but soon they took it seriously, and did their best and it went ok well. We assume they liked it, they invited us to come back and do it again...

ART AND INSPIRATIONAL DISCUSSION

Sugarswan exposed at MBK, Pilestræde, Copenhagen.

Last week, Chancepartout held a course about volunteer motivation and welfare in Copenhagen. The space, especially the room, where we could provide ourselves with coffee and chocolate, was full of interesting art pieces. ”Spending two days of talking about how we are doing is a rare phenomenon, when we constantly have to run to find resources” a participant from the course said. Understanding our volunteers (or co-workers) is rarely seen happening just by using a questionnaire - it demands conversation, which opens up for inspiration and renewal. It is worthwhile to stop, at least once in a while, and wonder together - like when we crowd around a piece of art and look at it from different angles.

NEWS ON THE FORUM PLAY FRONTIER!

britandersen forumspil
.

When developing an alternative learning tool, a central component of the design is training i.e. by using forum play. Forumplay is an excellent tool for giving thoughts and ideas a bodily shape and movement.

Forum Play is a case based roleplaying learning method for training difficult and conflictual situations with the purpose of achieving new perspectives and means of action. We use forumplay as a preferred method for training situations in courses and on the side, Carina is working with Simon in a company that works solely with forumplay.
