  • Iran 2017

    Im Januar 2017 werden Monika Single, Andreas Schock und Susie Wimmer, in Zusammenarbeit mit dem UNHCR und anderen lokalen Nichtregierungsorganisationen Shows in Teheran und Umgebung, dem Flüchtlingscamp des UNHCR in Kerman, sowie Auftritte in Saveh und Mashad spielen. Mitreisender wird voraussichtlich auch Walter Steffen sein, der uns bereits in deutsche Flüchtlingseinrichtungen begleitet und den Film “Happy Welcome” mit uns realisiert hat. Wir hoffen, dass ein neuer Film über Clownerie entstehen kann.


  • Indien 2017

    Vom 25. Februar bis zum 8. März 2017 werden Susie Wimmer und Heimo Thiel, begleitet von Amruta Mapuskar nach Indien reisen, um in Fortsetzung unserer Arbeit des letzten Jahres einen weiteren Workshop für indische Künstler zu realisieren. Um den Teilnehmern des letztjährigen Workshops eine umfassendere und tiefere Auseinandersetzung mit unserer Arbeit zu ermöglichen, werden die beiden neben der Clownerie auch eine Einführung in die Zirkuskünste geben.
    Das gelegte Fundament für eine eigenständige Arbeit von lokalen Clowns wird dadurch erweitert und das Repertoire der Künstler, die mit den Kindern arbeiten, vertieft. Das Foto wurde von Max Windholz beim letztjährigen Workshop in Indien gemacht.

Neues aus dem Blog:

There’s a man in a cap behind the counter of the cantine at which we eat. He stands there every day, his hands crossed in front of his black leather jacket, smiling at us beneath  his traditional hat. He barely speaks, but his smile is welcoming each time.

Just around the corner, in the roadside café between the theatre and the cantine, a small woman serves tea with bright, cheerful energy, occasionally sitting down beside us while a friend translates to her where we come from and why we are here. The metalic smell of the welder who burns unrecognisable machine parts at the door, sometimes drift into the dimly lit rooms and joins the conversation.

Between giving our workshop and rehearsing, our world has shrunk to this tiny landscape of two side streets strung together via a dusty main artery; the man who sits crouched low, a scale to measure our weight at his feet, the pile of construction shingle strewn halfway into the road, the broken paving before and after, they have become as familiar to us as our own hallways at home.

But, once work is over, there has been a few hours to see some of Kathmandu. Last night, shortly before midnight, we made it to the Pashupati temple for the opening evening of the Shiva ratri festival that happens today. The area was a cramned with life, both young and old, shouting, singing, laughing, the temple glowing golden in the heart of it. Today, traffic has gone into hibernation around Shilpee, where the streets have been closed to allow the celebrations. Magically, for the first time during our stay, the dust is minimal.

The celebrations haven’t effected our workshop, though. Our entire class worked with extreme concentration and joy throughout the morning, exploring the corners and unique perspectives of their clown. How wonderfully they interpreted their characters, managing to bring each one to life. It was sad to finish, but some consolation that we will be back to work on their clown show in two weeks. We are certain that they’ll make something beautiful and funny!

Which is also what we are doing our best to do every day. The work with Yubaraj had been productive – the final show is around half way there. After an initial finding process, we are now clear concerning our characters and motivations. We have another couple of days before heading to the schools. Let’s see what they bring!
