Our Mission

500 Clown uses action-based performance, improvisation, and circus arts to tell long-form dramatic stories that catapult the performers into physical and emotional risk. 500 Clown strives to create a charged environment that celebrates the unpredictable power of the moment. In creating and performing our shows, we seek opportunities to take physical and emotional risks. We have discovered through practice that working at our physical and emotional edge brings the audience into an active rather than passive relationship to the performers and story.
