to present the world premiere of
THE SECRET PARIS PROJECT
A queer clown show devised with an ensemble of eight women
Directed by Clare Hammoor
LIMITED 2-WEEK ENGAGEMENT
APRIL 17-26, 2014
Long shadows, hungry desires, sad clowns and devastating dreams. These are sparks in the
devised theatre-making at the heart of THE SECRET PARIS PROJECT. The Project features
an ensemble of eight clowns as they exploring the sad, queer world of Paris in the 1930s.
Inspired by Brassaï's photographs from Le Monocle in Paris during this period, this
ensemble of women is working within the fading art of clowning in order to breathe new
life into our complex connections with queer histories in order to imagine undreamt
utopias. Accompanied by a live percussionist, Abby Fisher, this new, breathtaking
production questions desire and longing through the potent laughter and inescapable tears
that can only be found in the mysterious world of clowns.
This project’s ensemble stars: Johana Barral, Corrie Blissit, Marjorie Conn, Lauren
Durdach, Jamie Law, Jessica Ranville, Dana Scurlock and Kamaria Williams.
This production features original, live percussion by Abby Fisher. Costume design is done
by Amalya Meira Goldberg. Scenic design by Bradley Wehrle. Lighting design by Jake
DeGroot. Charlene Deen is the production stage manager. This production is co-produced
by The Secret Theatre (Richard Mazda, Artistic Director) and Clare Hammoor.
