The show requires minimal lighting equipment and can be adapted for a simple lights up and go, if need be. Sound is equally as simple, as we only require a speaker to play the cues from. The majority of the props fit into a suitcase with the only exception being a bicycle which folds down to be a little larger than a standard suitcase, all can easily fit in the back of a standard car together. There is no set and the required tech rehearsal can easily be completed in under 4 hours. The show has been performed in the past on stages as little as 3m x 2m, but also thrives in larger environments.

Jennifer and myself have both had the privilege of being trained in clown from one of Europes great clown masters, Philippe Gaulier. Gaulier's method to clowning is a unique one wherein an individual is encouraged to discover what is special and unique about themselves and express that in order to become an engaging clown on stage. If given the opportunity, we would love to run clown workshops teaching this method to others who are looking to learn. We can tailor the workshops to facilitate a wide range of ages and skill levels. We have both taught to school groups and adult classes on several occasions. Running sessions for beginners and sessions for intermediate/advanced. Clowning is an excellent way to enable an individual or group to embrace their quirks and find a sense of happiness and pride in their differences. It brings people together and helps to fight off depression. So with these workshops we could leave a legacy of fun, happiness and laughter.
