Love and Chaos takes the audience on a journey of failure and success, in the risky endeavour to balance in the midst of the chaos in the world.
"In the best clown tradition Alan held up a window-mirror for us to step through and reflect on the patterns, habits and rituals of our days. It was funny, moving and excellent theatre."
Love and Chaos is a clown and circus performance, which takes the audience on a journey of failure and success, in the risky endeavor to balance in the midst of the chaos in the world.
With twenty-five years performing experience, since attending a clown school in Sweden in 1977, and with 20 years experience of teaching clown, Alan Clay has developed a unique, irreverent, modern Australian approach to the clown form.
In 1999 he created Love and Chaos to showcase the emotional, interactive nature of clown work, and use the physicality of the circus to give the audience a powerful experience.
Love and Chaos was premiered at the Festival of Modern Clown in Amsterdam in 1999, and has toured to festivals in Holland and Austria, and performed at seasons in Australia.
The show will tour to Canada for the first time in 2003. Love and Chaos has been performed at such varied events as the American Express Conference, the Linz Street Theatre Festival, and the Leura Flower Festival in Sydney.
