Chad Live Directs a Workshop is part show and part workshop that plays to big audiences at the Lyric Hyperion Theater in LA.
The concept is simple. An ensemble of strangers are live directed as they improvised a 90-minute, mostly silent clown show in front of a live audience. Chad pushes these brave souls into taking huge risks and embracing their epic failures. Through it all, Chad points out teachable moments for students or just audience members who are curious about how clown work differs from other performance styles.
Chad Damiani is a New Jersey native who has performed and taught clown for the last six years. He was one-half of the clown duo Jetzo (which performed nearly 600 shows) and currently collaborates with amazing talents like Dr. Brown and Natalie Palamides (their ensemble recently shot a TV project for FX). Chad also works as a clown consultant for Spiegelworld, the largest circus live events company in America.
