HOW TO BE AN IDIOT: A SIX WEEK COURSE FOR ADULTS

We can all take ourselves a bit too seriously from time to time, work, stress and responsibilities can quickly take over and we can quickly forget our need to laugh and play.

Idiot School is a six-week course for adults to explore their own sublime idiocy! They’ll focus on freeing our imaginations and bodies from the “shoulds” and “should-nots” that constrain our natural capacity to play & explore – we’ll do this to one end, to release our inner idiot – they’ll cover:

PLAY LAUGHTER OPTIMISM MISCHIEF SLAPSTICK

BAFFLEMENT SPONTANEITY PHYSICAL COMEDY FOOLISHNESS

THE GENTLE ART OF STUPIDITY & THE JOY OF FAILURE

VOICE TEXT & STORYTELLING

You do not need any experience in clowning, foolishness or stupidity to fully enjoy the course! If you would like more information or to book a place, please email: idiotschool@rock.com or call Mark 07507308149.

Venue: The International Community Centre, 61b Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG1 3FNDates & Time: 07/06/10 – 12/07/10 7.00 pm – 9.30 pm
