slapstick workshop

Saturday 12pm - 1.30pm Pie Throwing & Slapstick Workshop with Alex Frith 11-16yrs (90 mins)

With small performance to follow $25


The time has come for you to reveal your inner clown and find your place in the clowning pecking order, no better place than in a pie throwing and slapstick workshop. Learn the art of dishing out slaps, kicks, shoves and drags. Fall flat on your face and learn about knaps and “the slapstick" itself...  find the fun in taking a pie in the face and how much joy it is to throw one!  This workshop will dig into some basic skills and present a small show with a healthy dose of pies to give the act the comedy gold we are looking for. So if your naughty is out-twitching your nice - grab a place and get your pie on!
