Hamiltonian Artists is excited to host mentor Rachel Debuque's Professional Development Speaker Series (PDSS) program: Funny Bone: an introduction to comedy with Lex Brown. In this workshop, we'll play introductory Clown games to loosen up the body and mind and get in touch with your honesty, innocence, and sense of play. Those with absolutely no performance experience are most welcome, as are seasoned professionals and everyone in between. Make sure to bring movement clothes, a childlike sense of fun, and your own one-of-a-kind enthusiasm.


About Rachel Debuque
Rachel is a visual artist and designer whose work spans installation, sculpture, video, and performance. Her work investigates ambiguity in objects, space, and identity. In partnership with artist Justin Plakas, PLAKOOKEE creates work that ranges from socially engaged projects to installations, video, and design.
