INside the box
If Carol Burnett and the Three Stooges had triplets who were raised by Mr. Bean, you'd get award-winning clown trio Box of Clowns.
We are Box of Clowns, a physical theatre ensemble from Portland, Oregon. We are a clown troupe and proudly come from a tradition of popular theatre. Our premier work, "Mom?", was our culmination project at Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre, and thus our box was born. Our ensemble methods have grown out of the teachings at Dell’Arte, our own group research, and a collective desire to find delight and humor in unexpected places. We benefit from pushing ourselves past expected limits physically and mentally, ruthless play, and fierce editing. Box of Clowns aims to create visceral, emotional, and provocative experiences for our audiences.
