Silly! Surreal! Somatic! Sensational!
Clowning with Purpose
Hi! I'm Solairah! A Silly, Surreal, Somatic Clown!
I use the term "Somatic Clown" to express my aim to provide clowning that works to educate, entertain, and encourage healthy relating and connections with all of our bodies.
My clowning can be described as Silly, Surreal, and Somatic. I enjoy engaging people in interactive games. I trained in clowning at the Academy of Clown Arts.
I like to try out different clown characters and makeup, but I usually appear in blue face as "Solairah, a 'Sir Reel' Clown from Outerspace." To the left you will see slide show pictures of me after a show with Ms. Bing Bing the clown. playing games with some folks during a day of street clowning, and showing up as "Sir Reel" for a Surreal Sirkus meeting in Pack Square Park.
No matter what type of clowning I am doing, I hope to bring attention to the concept of 'Kindness Systems' which aims to encourage us to put quality basic needs for All Children Everywhere (ACE) as a cultural and organizational framework upon which we all can agree
