"Homunculus's workshops were highly entertaining and all students were engaged in all their activities. The expertise they brought to the workshops was invaluable and gave students an insight into performance and clowning.★★★★★

"Thank you so much for today, we learnt and developed so many skills in such a short amount of time. Through this intensive we took away some very important skills that can be applied throughout our entire theatre course and journey as artists. It was an absolute privilege to work with someone that is so enthusiastic and passionate about their art form. The workshop has inspired us all creatively and sparked our interests in Clowning as a theatre form that is equally as nerve racking as it is exciting.★★★★★

"I am a Secondary Drama Teacher at St Joseph's Nudgee College. I have just spent the day with my Year 9 drama students who participated in a Comedy and Clowning Workshop with Clint from Homunculus Theatre Company. Clint led the students through a variety of activities and high energy games all geared toward guiding the students to discover their inner clown. The skills and techniques the students explored in this workshop are absolutely invaluable to their personal development. By the end of the day, the room was buzzing with energy and gratitude for the connection the students had made with Clint and with Clowning. Thank you for a day of joy and a belly full of laughter!★★★★★

"This is the second time we have had Clint from Homunculus Theatre Company visit our school. I knew that after the first visit we would definitely get him back again this year. The workshop that Clint ran was based around the central skill of clowning and used improvisation and physical theatre techniques to challenge the students to create dramatic action and meaning in alternative ways. The workshop was part of their study of physical theatre this semester and the students were pushed to their limits creatively amid lots of laughs. Thanks Clint and Homunculus for another great workshop. The students really enjoyed the chance to interact with an industry professional."★★★★★

"Thank you so much for the clowning workshop you presented to the students of Pimpama State Secondary College. My students had so much fun learning about the basic elements of clowning in a relaxed and encouraging environment. I don’t think I have ever seen them laugh so hard! I am sure that the activities shown in the workshop will enhance the level of confidence and creativity in my students’ upcoming clowning assessment piece. I can’t wait to work with Homunculus Theatre Company again!"★★★★★
