Angels Can Fly: A Modern Clown User Guide

Front Cover
Artmedia Publishing, 2005 - Sports & Recreation - 540 pages
Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide, includes a mix of fiction which follows the adventures of ten clowns, some personal anecdotes from clowns from around the world, a total of 50 practical clown exercises, and some theory on the nature of modern clown. Clown is a fascinating, diverse, complex and exciting art form, which has existed around the planet for thousands of years. Like any art form it has to evolve to stay relevant to the culture nurturing it, and at the same time, and by its very nature, clown teases and turns upside down the cultural patterns and boundaries around us. This book is an attempt to chart the growth of modern clown, and to promote the process by providing, not only practical exercises for individuals and groups, but also reference points for thinking.

Dearest sir,
Just the other week I was saying to myself "I wish I could be more of an idiot" soon after I would stumble upon your book in a garbage can.
