Unique and memorable experiences that will make you laugh out loud and connect directly to the heart.

“Clint has been tutoring in my Performing Skills Unit at QUT for the past seven years, and the students have found him to be one of the best tutors they have ever experienced. He is an extremely dedicated and professional teacher who brings a wealth of industry knowledge. Not all practitioners can teach: Clint is an exception to this rule! “Unique and memorable experiences that will make you laugh out loud and connect directly to the heart.” ★★★★★ – Caroline Heim – Queensland University Of Technology

This is an opportunity to work with Clint Bolster, who’s approach is underpinned by the assumption that everyone has something to offer and that laughter is a unique and powerful engager.

LAUGHTER connects directly to the heart…it celebrates the joy of human interaction – and the incredible power of how a simple act of kindness, and authentic connection, can transform a person’s life – developing and strengthening inherent resilience. LAUGHTER conceals, gives permission to play, allows expression, liberates and reveals; and instills a sense of joy, vulnerability, physical discipline and freedom of expression in the participant. The opportunity to play, express, be physical, relate and discover in real time and space is a vital life skill.

These specifically tailored programs can culminate in:

2 Hour Workshop
1 Day Workshop
3 Day Residence culminating in performance
1 Week Residence culminating in performance
2 Week Residence culminating in performance
Professional Development for Teachers
Community Activations
Festival and Events culminating in Street Theatre Performance

We strongly believe access to live performing artists contributes greatly to social-emotional skills development; It builds resilience, compassion, understanding of diversity, empathy, focus, problem-solving and communication skills, a sense of community and well-being.

★★★★★ "Through structured play and laughter, we were able to gain invaluable experiences that we can apply in our classroom teaching. Clint was both engaging Gand incredibly hilarious - a testament to his trade. A beautiful insightful entry to the wonderful world of Clowning - a brilliant lesson for life!"

Rebecca Meale, Carmel College

★★★★★ "What a brilliant masterclass at the Drama Queensland Conference! I was feeling tired, unmotivated and uncommitted to teaching Commedia for the first time in many years. Clint - you were disarming, direct, amusing and beyond inspiring! I shall sally forth into life armed with such beautiful experiences - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!"

Jessica, Bentley Park College

★★★★★ "Clint is inspiring in the way he is able to respond to the needs of his students and draw from his wealth of experience to cater for each different class. As a teacher it has been a fantastic professional development opportunity to see such a passionate vivacious artist at work and we look forward to welcoming Clint back every year!"

Michelle, Helensvale State High School

★★★★★ "I recently attended a professional development workshop run by Clint Bolster at The Game Changer Australia and New Zealand Drama Conference. I can honestly say his workshop was the highlight of the entire conference! Clint was enthusiastic encouraging, hilarious and extremely approachable from the moment we entered the room! Absolutely World Class!"

Ashlea Ross, Maitland School

Caroline Heim - QUT

★★★★★ "It is a delight to watch Clint work with students; in artful way he has of drawing them out of their comfort zones to have fun and learn much about themselves is extraordinary. The genuine love of his art form, along with his depth of knowledge and experience, provides the surety and confidence that teachers need when organising guest artists."
