Alexa, why am I sad? This clown is down, so she enlists the help of a comic companion, the audience and a virtual assistant. Together they embark on a frank and funny exploration of mental health. ClownHearted is a physical comedy, without dialogue, that hopes to focus on friendship in an increasingly isolated society. This light-hearted, accessible show invites you to join two clowns on a journey through self-care. With plenty of playful interaction, audiences and performers will clown around together to discover that laughter really can be the best medicine.Book Now
