Rebel Clowning Trainings

Like all armies, people who wish to join the ranks of CIRCA have to undergo training. Before going into baffle with CIRCA, recruits take part an intensive "big shoe camp" where they learn Basic Rebel Clown Training (BRCT). At the end of the BRCT you will be capable of taking on any CIRCA mission but will be advised that further training is necessary as learning to be truly stupid and
discovering our clown is a longer process. Becoming a clownbattant can be challenging, but it's a rewarding life.

The training will involve games and exercises which develop a spirit of subversive play, help us work efficiently as a group, become more spontaneous in life and during actions, and begin the process of finding the clown that resides in all of us.
There are five phases of BRCT:
* Finding the Inner Clown
* Subversive Play
* Civil Disobedience and Direct Action
* Buffoon Manoeuvres
* Marching and Drilling

If you are Brighton-based and can accomodate rebel clown trainers or trainees coming from afar, please let us know! Prospective clowns come from all around to take part in the training, and we hope to be able to find beds for all for 1 or 2 nights.

Please email training(AT)rebelclown(DOT)net to register or for more information...
Places are very limited...We look forward to hearing from you 8-)
