The International Institute for Very Very Serious Studies, a.k.a., the IIVVSS, is a performance training program in Beirut, Lebanon, to develop the talents of experienced artists and send them out to use their skills to engage with communities.
Selected artists will be put through a seven-month program with two parts: a crash course in techniques such as participatory art, clowning, mask work, bouffon technique, puppetry, physical theatre, and storytelling with professional teachers from Italy, the United Kingdom, France, the United States, and Lebanon, followed by a field project using the acquired skills to create a street performance in a community in Lebanon.
Along the way, there will be NO MESSING AROUND.The school’s first year will run from Sept. 1, 2019, through April 2020 and will be free of charge for accepted students.
Applications are due by July 15, 2019. Promising candidates will be selected for a follow-up audition.
The IIVVSS is a project of Clown Me In and is supported by Drosos Foundation
