In 2020 she will be teaching in Berlin one masterclass open to a maximum of 12 participants focusing on discovering each individual inner Clown .
“For me, every kind of existence in front of an audience begins with the body. Here I am with my whole body and mind!” says Nicole Kehrberger that will begin her classes with intensive movement training integrating elements of acrobatics (working with the personal needs and limits of each individual), awareness, energetic dance, stretching and relaxation exercises taken from Yoga, Pilates, Shiatsu and Feldenkrais. The Masterclass will focus on discovering the sense of ridiculousness which gives tremendous freedom, ease and success on stage as well as in life. Participants will use their own personal and wonderful silliness and stupidity to be irresistibly funny. As a matter of fact everybody has his own, very personal clown which is not easy to discover. Participants will meet their inner idiot which will give them immense joy as Ms Kehrberger says : “A certain kind of human-hearted stupidity is a wonderful quality, it is a gift that is given to us by nature”.
