The clown or clown is a state that lives and pulsates from ourselves when we accept "to be" in essence and purity, driven by the pleasure and desire to play and play. In a vision of the clown as an archetype, lived from a state of authenticity, madness and surrender, let us seek the laughable of our presence, in connection with the public and our partners.
