Default Angels Can Fly, a Modern Clown User Guide

Angels can Fly, a new book by Alan Clay, includes a mix of fiction which follows the adventures of ten clown characters, some personal clown anecdotes from clowns from around the world, a total of 50 practical clown exercises, and some theory on the nature of modern clown.

"Clown is a fascinating, diverse, complex and exciting art form, which has existed around the planet for thousands of years. Like any art form it has to evolve to stay relevant to the culture nurturing it, and at the same time, and by its very nature, clown teases and turns upside down the cultural patterns and boundaries around us."

Including anecdotes from:
Jonathon Acorn, NZ
Clown Bluey, UK
Sue Broadway, Australia
Amelia Cadwallader, Australia
Hillary Chaplain, USA
Claire Coleman, UK
Bill 'Stretch' Coleman, USA
Andrew Cory, Australia
Shobi Dobi, USA
Martin Ewen, NZ / USA
Jango Edwards, Holland
Richard Hughson, USA
Rumpel, Jester of OZ Australia
David MacMurry Smith, Canada
Kirk Marsh, USA
Johnny Melville, Scotland / Holland
Daniel Oldaker, Australia
Drew Richardson, USA

Default Good stuff

I took Alan's class at motionfest and if his writing is anywhere near as good as his teaching, I recommend this book.
