The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable. Carl Jung
The ancient art of fooling has been with us as long as there have been audiences, and the theatrical archetype of the fool is the starting point for this journey.
The fool is a part of our selves which sees life innocently and is not afraid to say what it sees- like the child who declared ‘the emperor has no clothes’. The Fool is free from being bound by society’s rules of self censorship.
Fooling also holds the key to how we learn and create.
The fool plays on the edge, with one foot on the solid ground of the known, and the other hovering over the abyss of the unknown. The fool plays solely for the sake of the pleasure of playing, utterly absorbed, with no concern for success or failure.
Often we stifle our inner fools’ voice for fear of ridicule, and so loose touch with the deep wisdom and easy access to spontaneous creativity that it has to offer us.
Exploring the way of the fool, reclaiming its simple and curious view of the world brings us close to the creative centre that is the root of our true nature, The Fool asks “who am I really?’
“Do I dare to be different, risk making a fool of myself, to connect with my souls journey?”
Using theatre, Franki ‘the fool’ offers to support the individual in their unique process of self-discovery.
By viewing the world through the fools’ eyes, it is possible to show where normality is going mad.
When there is a wish to change the world, fools begin by changing themselves.
This unique approach to accessing personal and group creativity through theatre has proven its worth all over Europe for 20 years. Her method demonstrates a revitalising and non-abusive approach to life and work, which leads participants to discover a new language to mine their personal resources, and accesses the creative spark safely and predictably.
