"THE CLOWN IN YOU" is a clowning manual for students, teachers and practitioners. It contains all kinds of valuable clown knowledge; both practical and theoretical. Within its pages readers will find all the basic principles of clowning, first-hand clowning experiences, tried and tested clown games and exercises, quotes from interviews Caroline held with professional clowns, examples of clown improvisations, and explanations of the clown philosophy underlying all the comic techniques used by clowns. The book thus provides an unprecedented insight into the heart of clowning and throws a fresh light on all the skills, audacity and dedication needed to encounter, encourage and set free one's clown. Caroline has worked with clowning from the inside out and the outside in. She writes from the perspective of a life spent investigating her art, both as a professional clown and as an international clown teacher. This is a must read for anyone wanting to learn more about the art and practice of clowning, or for anyone simply interested in becoming a healthier, happier and less inhibited person. ""Discovering your clown and allowing yourself complete freedom of expression is an addictive experience; an adventure sport, whose only drawback is that when you're on your way home you feel an urgent desire to keep on practising it."" CONTENTS The first three chapters introduce the reader to the art and craft of clowning as practiced by professional clowns throughout the world today. They also clarify all the misconceptions that have arisen around the clown that in reality hinder a student's ability to be funny. Chapters four to ten tackle specific areas of clown technique. Each chapter contains explanations of the reasons for, and reasoning behind, each element of the technique, plus guidelines and examples of how it all works on a practical level. Chapter eleven explores one of the least discussed aspects of clowning; the most common fears students face and how they can be dealt with. The final chapter examines the necessary ingredients for clowning success. It also covers the phenomenon of "flying," finding one's own unique comic wings. WHAT THE PROFESSIONALS HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS BOOK: " The Clown in You cuts past all the jargon and unhelpful generalizations about clowns and tackles the clown's creative process with the kind of insight that can only come from a seasoned performer. Highly recommended for both beginners and experienced clowns." "JOHN TOWSEN, author of "Clowns," director of The (Very) Physical Comedy Institute, U.S.A." "Caroline Dream's superbly documented 30 years of experience as a performer and trainer is an invaluable source of reference for professionals, hobbyists and teachers. One of the most illuminating and insightful clown development guidebooks that I have read." "ROB FLORENCE, physical theatre teacher at The Arts & Entertainment College, NL" "Every clown, aspiring or professional, should have this book in their library. It's a great resource for helping clowns discover deeper layers of their character and creating powerful material. Packed with invaluable gems for understanding and creating in the art of clowning." "ROB TORRES, clown, The Big Apple Circus, U.S.A." "In this book I've found fantastic exercises and material which will inspire clowns to play and, most importantly, help keep their idiot present." "AITOR BASAURI, Spymonkey, UK" "This book is a shortcut to your inner clown, a seductive invitation to joy and freedom, a lodestar for highly effective human development."" ANDRES AGUILAR, Clown, Founder of Risaterapia.org, MEX" "Caroline offers us her 30 years of clowning experience, disclosing a clown philosophy I fully concur with. I wholeheartedly recommend this book."" ANTON VALEN, clown with Cirque du Soleil (Alegria & Kurios), ESP

CLOWN YOURSELF is a useful manual for both clown students and facilitators. Within its pages Caroline shares what she has been exploring with her students since publishing her first book, The Clown In You. The first part is packed with valuable information, exercises and examples, whilst the second offers ideas on how to practice different aspects of the art of clowning in your daily life. Clown Yourself aims to reinforce and broaden your understanding of clown technique, as well as encourage you to think and behave in clown-like ways in your daily life. Part 1 is full of useful and interesting information such as: why it's so important to keep digging into the depths of our stupidity, the clown games that never fail to work, how having problems can enhance the comedy, why telling lies is so vital to creativity, what strategies to apply when things aren't going as planned, etc. All, of course, peppered with exercises, examples and quotes. Part 2 offers four weeks of "clown practices", fun experiments you can make in your everyday life. They are designed for you to maximize your clown creativity during the week so as not to lose momentum between courses or performances. PART 1 Chapter 1 gives you an overall view of the book's content and an explanation of how the daily life clown practices came into being. Chapter 2 contains a whole stack of persuasive reasons why to clown and keep practising regularly. Chapter 3 tackles the thorny issue of identity and explains in depth why maintaining a concrete idea of "who you think you are" will only limit your clown's ability to be generous with who you really are. Chapters 4 to 7 cover specific areas of clown technique . Each chapter contains explanations of the reasons for, and reasoning behind, each element of the technique, plus exercises and examples of how it all works on a practical level. Chapter 8 details the many challenges you face when improvising and offers a series of blueprints to facilitate your ability to make better, bolder and more comic choices. PART 2 Four weeks of Monday to Friday clown practice options to keep you homing in on your clown skills and throwing yourself into the comic fray... day after day. ____FAQ_____IS IT FOR ME? This book is for clown and theatre students, clown teachers, voluntary hospital clowns, professional clowns, comedians, actors, laughter therapists, anyone interested in clowns or clowning and anyone looking to understand in greater depth the techniques, games and practices contemporary clowns are using to, win over their audiences and create laughter. WHY BUY IT? Caroline has worked with clowning from the inside out and the outside in. She writes from the perspective of a life spent investigating her art, both as a professional clown and as an international clown teacher. After writing her first clowning manual, she created many new courses offering students different chunks of information regarding technique. The insights she gleaned from leading these courses and the students who took them proved too compelling not to be documented. This manual took six years to write and it may take you the same amount of time to assimilate all that it contains!CREDITSFirst edition, November 2020Barcelona, Spain(c) Caroline Dream, 2020Published by Ediciones Clownplanetwww.clownplanet.com/edicioneswww.theclowninyou.comGeneral Editor: Álex NavarroLayout & design: Álex NavarroText Revision: Richard LesliePrinted by AmazonISBN-13: 978-84-09-24848-3MAYBE YOU'RE ALSO INTERESTED IN CAROLINE DREAM'S FIRST BOOK: THE CLOWN IN YOU

How does one move out of an abusive marriage and transform her thinking so that she can manifest a wonderful marriage based on love, mutuality, and respect? That is the journey that Cleone took, starting with her debut as Chloe the Clown in 1994. Through her six clown characters (she calls herself a multiple personality of a deliberate kind), she sees each clown as representing different ages/stages of her life. And that each moment of our life is sacred, something to honor and accept. As a Caring Clown (versus a Circus Clown), she spread love and joy to countless people in hospitals, nursing homes, parade routes, workshops, putting loved ones into clown, etc. But what she found was the recognition of her own self-love and appreciation! She decided she didn't need to be a clown anymore and quit in 2004. What made her return to clowning in 2010? How is clowning a SACRED ART? How does that relate to life? Answers to these accompanied by 109 pictures and illustrations tell her story.
