19 - 20 JanuarySomatic - Thessaloniki


Clowning is a state of playfulness that invites us to re-discover the child that lives in our hearts. Our clown is us without social masks and without the fear of failing and being vulnerable. The clown is genuine and naïve and exists to make people happier

This approach to clowning is not a technique but a personal journey towards finding one’s own unique way of being a clown, by daring to laugh and saying “yes” to every new challenge.

It is only when we stop worrying about being ridiculous that we begin to feel free and capable of changing the world.

On the second day, if the group will agree, we will have a walk in the streets together, as clowns!

No previous experience in clowning, theatre, improvisation or performance is required. Only the will to explore together our playfulness, with a red nose!

Every participant of the Clowining workshop will receive as a gift a red nose: a professional one!

The training language will be a physical, simple and easy-to-understand English: we will translate to Greek if needed. But clowns really don't need many words!

Come for a weekend of intensive fun!

We need you!

Organized by

ANAMUH - Arts for Dialogue

ANAMUH is a not-for-profit social initiative aimed at establishing and sustaining a space for communitarian dialogue through the use of Theatre and Arts.

We are a group of enthusiast socially-committed artists and theatre practitioners: we believe that Theatre and Arts can make a sustainable positive change within people, in communities, in society.
We believe in Social Theatre and the enormous potential for positive social transformation that it offers, to foster inter-communitarian dialogue, to challenge stereotypes/discrimination, to build bridges among individuals and cultures.
We periodically organize and facilitate various training courses and workshops on various arts and disciplines, open to anyone willing to explore, transform, find inspiration and connection.
ANAMUH envisions a world where diverse communities know, respect and include each other, and where they grow together creating new ideas, tastes and forms of art on the basis of their own identities and cultures.
