Clown, Hospital and Music

In collaboration with Michael Christensen - creator of "Clows à l'Hôpital

Music is an extremely valuable tool for artists performing in healthcare environments. Skillfully utilized, music speaks every language, touches every culture and never insists. That is why Michael Christensen and I will be offering a five-day workshop this summer focused solely on music and how to integrate it into your work with vulnerable populations.
 
During the six-hours a day, five-day instructional period, I will establish solid musical vocabulary and together with Michael, we will explore methods of integrating it directly into healthcare settings. Music as a duo, music alone, music in the room, music in the clinics, hallways, nurses’ stations, music on hospital paraphernalia, sublime musical moments and raucous musical surprises.
 
Michael was the first clown to work in the hospital environment. He is a direct inspiration to the generations of clowns who followed his example. In 1986, Michael founded the Big-Apple-Circus-Clown-Clown-Care Unit, the first official organization to offer clowns in the care environment. Several clowns who worked there with him later founded organizations all over the world. He currently gives hospital clown workshops throughout Europe.
 
A word from Michael:
I chose to partner with Haim for this specialized session because he teaches music in a language that artists can immediately absorb and integrate into their work on the hospital floors. Haim’s techniques inform voice, partnering, character, rhythm, improvisational structure and musical rudiments easily applied to instruments, movement and/or the human voice.
