Over the past 40 years, Tom Roos has done in-depth research on the art of clowning, during which, together with others, he developed the concept of Clown Minimalist.

The Clown Minimalist is a copy of ourselves, but more open, more naive, more fragile, more spontaneous. He’s in direct contact with the public, here and now. His world can be redefined at any moment and the line between reality and imagination is invisible.

In this lab, to find our clown, we’re not putting on a disguise.
Instead, let us take off our disguise and our masks; let us get rid of the armour we learned to wear during our education to become a serious person.
We will learn to play in depth with our body, we will let the impulse of movement precede the word, the impulse of action precede thought.
