Clowning is a performance art. Clowns exist to perform.
Our obligation is to prepare ourselves for effective and entertaining performances.
Make up and costume are merely two of the many tools we use in our clowning. They are not what define us.
Costume and make up styles do change and evolve over the years and will continue to do so.
This is a sign of dynamic progress in our art form. No style of make up or costume is ultimately right or wrong. Some get more laughs than others...depending...on everything...hoho!
Clowning is a most free and open art form. It incorporates aspects of all other art forms.
Clowns are free to show expertise or feign incompetence. Clowns are free to explore. They are really experts in their skills.
Clowns are free to succeed or fail in their endeavors.
Clowns are free to laugh and cry. Clowns are free to relate to young and old.
"REAL" Clowning is inclusive and FUN!!! .
