Absurdism is a philosophical stance embracing a wide range of relativist perspectives.

Absurdism implies that the efforts of humanity to absolutely define, limit, express or exclude the inherent meaning of anything, including human existence, are absurd. This is because the qualities of the information that can be communicated and is available to the human mind, that the relationships it relates to, makes any certainty about such impossible. What can we believe?

In this workshop students will look at the two main principals of absurdist theatre:  A constant stream of consciousness and the ability to wait.

"Thank you Clint for your fun Commedia workshop which really brought our students into a creative arena where they felt anything was possible. They began to expect the unexpected and quickly jumped in with enthusiasm for fear of missing out on the action. It was exciting for both actor and audience to see the creation of character and the discovery of circumstance unfold before us as a unique and artistic shared experience."★★★★★

"Clint was in his usual fine, energetic form today, as he introduced the 12 Drama students of St Augustine's College to the wonderfully questionable world of Absurdism. The students were completely at his mercy, as he challenged them to think on their feet and explore the style in a series of practical activities that built their knowledge and skills. Just another reason why Homunculus Theatre Company remains a key fixture of our curriculum each year. Thanks Clint. Love your work as always!"★★★★★

"Thanks so much for the amazing work you have done with our students this week during your residency Clint!. Your energy and passion is contagious! You work hard to build rapport with all students and this translates into them being confident performers who are comfortable to take brave risks on stage. I was especially blown away with the way you engaged every student in the room regardless of learning difficulties or social anxieties. We can't wait to have you back!"★★★★★
