The Clowns Convention
In a swirling show, a group of international clowns searches for a way out of the crisis. Can clowns save humanity from destruction? Do they hold the last straw against polarization?
For this performance, the actors of Wunderbaum and Theaterhaus Jena try on the clownsuit themselves. To the music of beatboxer and musician Joost Maaskant (a.k.a. MAASK) they present never before seen clownsacts and investigate wheter they are still relevant.
With the rise of the horror clown and the disappearance of the circus, the clown’s reputation is in danger. Are they still taken seriously? Is society still waiting for that confronting mirror?
'We want you to join our army And if you think we are just clowns, you’re wrong. You are the biggest clown yourself'
