The Original Spinners are delighted to be hosting Clown in Dementia training led by international clown and trainer Angela Halvorsen Bogo. On 14th and 15th of October in Bristol, UK.

 

Expect 2 full days of deep explorative work, engaging numerous transferable skills. Aimed at people who have some experience or a strong interest working with people with dementia.

 

This 2-day course will introduce the basics of clowning as a means to connect sensitively with people with dementia in residential homes. We will explore key qualities and approaches of presence, physical and vocal play, vulnerability, humility and acceptance to expand your capacities, energy and heart space to meet people with dementia.

 

Angela Halvorsen Bogo trained in physical theatre, clown, singing and storytelling before beginning her professional work in 1990. She has been working as a clown and teaching clown based workshops for over 25 years. She is a clown and trainer for Klokkeklovene, a Norwegian company of clowns specialised in meeting people with dementia.
