Ruth has designed two exciting specialised workshops for third level theatre students. They can be tailored to be a one visit workshop through to a planned programme.
"Fun, Rigorous, Inspiring!" - Val
"Explorative, Emotive, Enlighting!" - Laura
"Helps one to connect to oneself, to play, to "step out of the box", to make discoveries and to revive the imagination!" - Valerie
"The Performing Arts studio in Colaiste Dhulaigh was filled with stillness and focussed concentration as the theatre students, red noses at the ready, observed a sole clown appear from behind a screen.
One by one the students confidently took to the floor with their personal clown, authentically expressing their emotions, subtly executing the humour and magic of clown and touching everyone in the room. Red Nose Clown Workshop practitioner Ruth Lehane created a safe space, enabling students to open to the world of clown and to each other. Her insightful and robust feedback to the students shone a light on their hidden performative abilities and they left the workshop with a spirit of play and a request for more.”
