This Month's ClownX


with Emmanuelle Delpech


9am (PST), 12pm (EST), 5pm (UK), 6pm (EU)

(The class will last approx 2.5 hours)

What's it About?

This workshop will focus on the discoveries made through the Jacques Lecoq pedagogy about the body, movement, space, state, breath and creating collectively.

“Tout Bouge” (trans. “Everything Moves”) is one of the famous quotes of Jacques Lecoq, the creator of the International school of theater in Paris. What’s behind that statement, that affirmation or rather, that provocation…?

Everything starts with the body. 

The actor has one instrument: their body. The body will be the tool to create theater. A body exists in a space, on stage or in a non traditional space with other bodies. And together they create movement. Moving the bodies in space, transforming the space and creating theater.

What’s more… the body can translate the movement of everything it observes. A tree, air, metal, a color. How does orange move? How does metal breathe? What is the gaze of air? How does the body and therefore the state of the actor change when it embodies elements, materials, colors? What do we learn about the laws of movement, of the dynamic and quality of gestures? How does the rhythm observed help us understand that theater is rhythm, without rhythm comes Boredom!

Jacques Lecoq pedagogy helps the actor to play its instrument and tune it. By translating in movement what does not move when we observe it, we open a new world for the actor-creator and enrich our creativity with new vocabulary. We also look at life and are able to understand and reproduce its true rhythm, which creates a theater rooted in what the audience will recognise and therefore trust.


In this 2.5 hour workshop you will get:

  • 2.5 hours of exclusive small-group time with clown master teacher EMMANUELLE DELPECH.
  • Full explanation and demonstration of the Lecoq pedagogy and ideas of the actor's expressive body. 

  • Practical exercises and experience to help you understand this concept in practice.
  • Individual coaching from EMMANUELLE
  • Q&A time with EMMANUELLE to discuss ideas form the class or broader issues.
  • Archive of 12 past ClownX Masterclasses.

What People Are Saying:

This week's ClownX masterclass was truly amazing! I learnt so much in such a short time. Last night's Clown-versation was a treat as well. Barnaby is a fantastic educator and artist. He does all the right things, is very professional and is very helpful in developing my clown. Thank you!

Paul Ricketts

The ClownX Masterclass series has been pure magic. It's hard to put into words how transformative it is to be a part of it and all it offers. The practices and wisdom shared in each one is a gift in itself; compound the workshops and it is truly a winfall! I am so grateful for the constant inspiration and encouragement, and for what I am learning about myself and clowning. Did I mention, ClownX is M.A.G.I.C.?

Just took this amazing class thanks to Barnaby King! I highly recommend doing some of the Master classes. I can’t believe how much play we got to do in this workshop with the amazing Joe Dieffenbacher 🤡 Thanks to both of you. One of the best zoom Classes yet!
