Clowning has a millenary art practice all around the world, adopting different forms and representations in different cultures. It has always been related to transgression, subversion, transformation and healing. Today, clowns are performing everywhere: in circus, theatres, streets, hospitals, conflict zones and special educational programs of social intervention. Contemporary clowning starts to develop solid collaborations with education and health fields.
