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 with 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 extraordinary opportunity to collaborate with Clint Bolster, a seasoned professional whose approach is grounded in the belief that everyone has something valuable. At the heart of his work is the profound power of laughter, a force that can uniquely and deeply engage people.
Laughter, as Clint understands it, connects directly to the heart. It celebrates the beauty of human interaction and underscores the incredible potential for even the simplest acts of kindness and genuine connection to transform lives. Through laughter, individuals can develop and fortify their innate resilience. It serves as a gateway, concealing inhibitions, granting permission to play, allowing for authentic expression, liberating hidden emotions, and revealing the true essence of individuals. Laughter instills a sense of joy, vulnerability, physical discipline, and the freedom to express oneself fully.
Participating in these programs offers individuals a unique opportunity to interact in real-time and space. It’s a chance to play, express, be physical, relate to others, and make discoveries—an essential life skill that fosters personal growth and development.
These programs, thoughtfully tailored to meet specific needs, can take various forms, from concise 2-hour workshops to intensive 2-week residencies culminating in captivating performances. They also encompass professional development opportunities for educators, community activations, and participation in festivals and events that culminate in street theater performances.
We firmly believe that access to live performing artists plays a pivotal role in developing social-emotional skills. It fosters resilience, compassion, an appreciation of diversity, empathy, focus, problem-solving abilities, effective communication, and a profound sense of community and well-being. Clint Bolster’s work is a testament to the transformative power of the arts, and we are excited to share these experiences with others.
