Friday Flop

Presented by Citizens of Nowhere

Friday 16 August 2019

What happens when you put a bunch of clowns into a theatre with an audience?

Ever feel uneasy in the current climate? Faced with a global tsunami of idiocy in the real world, who will make sense of it all? Clowns have been making the meaningless, the taboo and the unthinkable into digestible fun for millennia. Why would they baulk at the present opportunity?

To laugh or not to laugh, that is the question.

London's international clown company continue their research into what makes clowning happen.

Citizens of Nowhere all trained at the London Clown School in the art of ridiculing themselves and everything else. They are trained to respond to laughter (and its absence) and directed by Jon Davison, one of the world’s leading clown practitioners.
