Do you …..
Want to push your practice forward?
Reach new limits in your artistic exploration?
Create funnier, more lovable, more hideous or outrageous characters?
Create more meaningful connections with your audience and build a more open and free stage presence?
Nicole is an amazing teacher, supporting to liberate you physically and emotionally, from old habits and barriers. Nicole works with you to express your full humanity on stage, believing this better connects you to your audiences and creates magnetic, unforgettable performances. Her teaching style is very physical, her goal, to help you to accept and release tension, freeing you to reach beyond what you previously thought you could do.
Nicole uses similar techniques as Philippe Gaulier, but as an internationally acclaimed, strong, physical, female artist in her own right, she brings a very different quality to the workshop space.
Bouffon is a powerful and subversive art form, the inverse of Clown. Where the clown invites the audience to laugh at her ridiculousness, the Bouffon is laughing at the ridiculousness of the audience. Perhaps the most famous Bouffon is an ex student of Phillip Gaulier’s Sacha Baron Cohen.
This course is a one off and not to be missed.
