Aubrey Clinedinst: Finding Clownections

Saturday, Jan. 12, Surel's Place


In 2018, the Surel's Place artist in residence program hosted musicians, visual artists, writers and even an art career coach. But despite that diversity, it's perhaps one of the last places you'd expect to find a clown. Aubrey Clinedinst, the January artist-in-residence, upends that notion. She's a professional clown and puppeteer with an MFA in Physical Theatre, and she's also Surel's Place's first-ever artist in residence focused on physical theater. On Saturday, Jan. 12, she'll host a workshop called Finding Clownections at Surel's Place, which will aim to teach expanded body awareness and help performers build relationships with their audiences. There are only a dozen spots, so if you'd like to learn to clown around like a pro, you'd better act fast to claim a seat.
