Media Clown

Integrating the entertainment industry’s newest digital media technologies with century-old analog clown routines, Media Clown revolves around the escapades of two clowns. Through repeated complications, the luddite clown finds himself thrust into a whirlwind of changing digital landscapes. The show explores how the clown exists in both the physical and digital worlds, the clown’s relevance to the digital age, the co-dependency between the analog and digital, and the blurred lines between real and imaginary spaces. Media Clown partners faculty and students from the University of Iowa in the USA with colleagues at Backstage Academy in England.
