PEG

Who needs a clown anyway? That's what we are all asking ourselves in these catastrofic times? What will become of the clown after it looses its stage, its audience, its purpose? Will they go back to where they came from, to be the village fool, become a scarecrow or a drifting vagabond?

 

The bozo: 'Peg' dives into these questions, while searching for work as the world crisis has dismissed her as essencial part of society.

In the international language of nonsense, this clown manage to communicate anything she wants with just one word: "WAP". Through slapstick technic, music gags, a deep caracter work and ofcourse while finding success through failure, Peg creates a common and playful space with the audience, an escape into a paralelle world that happens once laughtcramps breaks down the 4th wall of reality.

Lisa Skjøth Madsen is currently working with her clown 'PEG' who was born in the Brunette Bros. show: 'The greatest & 2nd Smallest Circus in the World'. The process and search goes under the working-title: 'Clowns are simply elevated village fools'. 

The Filmclip above created by Lisa, filmed and edited by Phillpa Young was a comment on the status of the artist during the pandemic times...
