OIN US FOR A CLOWN RETREAT WITH ARGENTINIAN CLOWN EZEQUIEL OLAZAR THIS SPRING! 
 
Welcome to an immersive journey into the enchanting world of clowning with the Argentinian Clown, Ezequiel Olazar amidst the stunning landscapes of Arrábida Natural Park in Portugal.
During these 4 days, Ezequiel invites you to join him in exploring the whimsical realms of physicality, voice, playfulness, and pleasure. You will embark on a discovery journey embodying your clown, allowing your creative essence to shine. This retreat is a unique opportunity to connect with your emotions and impulses, fostering authenticity in expression rather than performance.
The theme of this European tour is “JUMPING INTO THE EMPTINESS” in clown language this means to get into trouble. The clown is a fool, he is innocent, curious and always finds himself in trouble, in the unknown. In this retreat we will allow ourselves to make mistakes, to fail, to be in trouble and find pleasure in this mess.
What to expect:
We will practice clowning as a unique and powerful tool for expression, communication, and building confidence.
The focus will be on experiencing the pleasure of play, being present, listening, feeling urgency, connecting with your emotions and playing with them. Group exercises will help us with group communication and connection, opening our bodies and feelings to listen and co-create, training in nonverbal communication, following impulses through pleasure, expressing our ridiculousness, poetry, art, sharing ourselves with vulnerability, and organizing energy to enhance our feelings and deep presence.
If you’re a curious individual keen on exploring your physical body and embracing your uniquely ridiculous self… If you’re ready to unleash your inner clown and dive into the transformative world of clowning and performance, this is the workshop for you.

About Ezequiel:

Ezequiel trained under renowned instructors such as Gabriel Chame Buendia, Toto Castiñeiras, and Anton Valen (Cirque du Soleil), he spent four years at the Espacio Aguirre Clown School.
