                                                              3 DAYS

                                                              Usually, a laugh is sparked, and a smile is drawn by a perfected joke or a breathtaking anecdote. But, have you ever thought of bringing laughter to your audience by unveiling your inner clown? In "Clown Me In," Sabine Choucair shares her experience as a comedy writer for theater and movies as well as a storyteller. Sabine is the co-founder of “Clown Me In” in Lebanon and Mexico, a group that employs the art of clowning to fight social injustice around the world. This workshop adds to the knowledge of its participants by employing the basics of physical comedy, acting, and useful techniques in portraying the character of a clown.
