Clown Show

~Sandhiya, Prabhakaran

Clown, familiar comic character of pantomime and circus, known by distinctive makeup and costume, ludicrous antics, and buffoonery, whose purpose is to induce hearty laughter. The clown, unlike the traditional fool or court jester, usually performs a set routine characterized by broad, graphic humor, absurd situations, and vigorous physical action.

A clown’s makeup can be unsettling. It hides not only the person’s identity but also that person’s feelings. Worse, the makeup can result in mixed signals if, for example, the clown has a painted-on smile but is frowning. Then, there’s the uncanny nature of the makeup itself. The oversized lips and eyebrows distort the face so that the brain perceives it as human but slightly off. That oddness is heightened by a clown’s bizarre costume.

They came across borders visit Auroville last week from 12th to 16th and can do 40 minutes show for villages, schools, and projects.

They came 16th December 2019 and done the 40 minutes show for Isai Ambalam school.

Children enjoyed it a lot.
