21. 01. 2018 Matthew Silver, Helen Cusack O’Keeffe & Cecilia Knapp

Matthew Silver, Helen Cusack O’Keeffe & Cecilia Knapp will perform new works and improvisations beginning 18hr on  21. 01. 2018 @ Tennessee Bar 12 Rue André Mazet, 75006 Paris

My role as a clown, trickster and village idiot is to parody excessive seriousness by playing with taboos, rules, and social norms.  My inspiration comes from my heart.  I perform for smiles and laughter, loosening people’s armor, and opening up a portal for imagination, creativity and love.

Some people see me as a raving lunaticpompous “artistic” hipster, or attention-starved 9 year-old, but people don’t consciously understand the role of a clown in society. Read between the lines and you will start to see things from a different perspective.  By breaking down boundaries, I provide you, the viewer, with permission to open your mind and realize it’s okay to act silly from time to time. We may trick ourselves into believing we know everything, constantly striving for perfection in a society that requires a civilized, job-holding, serious individual.  We cannot be perfect.  If we allow ourselves the chance to be flawed perhaps we can let the obstacles humble us, rather than make us rigid.  In the end we can let our guards down to attain our most basic need of giving and receiving love.

Meet Matthew, The Pacifist ‘Clown’ Who Brings Burning Man To NYC. Created by Nicolas Heller from the No Your City series.
