like to join. and Piet also hosts a monthly clown get together known
as the "clown confabulation" which is also free. The"
Confabulation" is a place where Clown performers come together,
share and swop stories and ideas, do mini performances or
talks and learn from each other. The idea is that we dont have to
jealously safeguard the tricks of our trade, but we can grow more
as performers by networking and sharing our skills.The confabulation
also have a monthly clown newsletter, known as the clown chatter.
