Clown: Readings in Theatre Practice
by Jon Davison (Author)
This rich collection of readings offers a wide-ranging and authoritative survey of clown practices, history and theory, from the origins of the word clown through to contemporary clowning. Covering clowns in theatre, circus, cinema, TV, street and elsewhere, the author’s stimulating narrative challenges assumptions and turns orthodoxy on its head.
