Jef Johnson returns to Middletown with a new workshop focused on awakening the creative spirit August 26, 27, and 28. A leader in the field of performance theory, Jef has been investigating personal perception, performance and play for the past 25 years. He is a principal artist in the Broadway and International touring company of Slava’s Snowshow. He has also worked with Cirque du Soleil as clown, special artistic consultant and workshop director. Drawing from Clown, Mask and Butoh, his work has initiated deeper investigation into the primary essence of human experience, character and performance. On Thursday, August 25th, Jef will give a free lecture on "Nothing" at The Buttonwood Tree at 8pm. For additional information, contact Aryn Kyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
