NOA pilot-project: open Workshops – Frome Weekend + Seven Day Workshop
May 11 @ 10:00 - May 17 @ 17:30
***** PLEASE TAKE NOTE!*****
THE WEEKEND WORKSHOP TAKES PLACE AT THE HUBNUB CENTRE (please click on the venue name for details) AND THEN THEN FROM MONDAY 13th UNTIL FRIDAY 17th THE WORKSHOP TAKES PLACE IN ROOK LANE (again, please click on the venue name for details)
The venue listed below as the location is Rook Lane, but as mentioned above, the workshop starts at the Hubnub centre. The two venues are very close. Just a 5 or 6 minute stroll. Fab!
This workshop is part of the pilot project “Nomadic Academy for Fools – NOA”, which officially starts as a four-year program in summer 2019. But you can join in our pilot Project this year already. So, it is open to the public to join, but you will also get the pleasure of working with Fools who are undertaking and developing as pioneers a full years worth of training with both Jonathan, and Fools that have trained for years under him that are now teaching.
In this workshop, you have two options of Fooling with Jonathan and the NOA. Either join for just the weekend, and dip your toes in to the World of Fooling. Or join for the full seven days for the complete and fully immersive experience.Joining for the weekend gives you an introduction where you can ‘dip your toes into the water’ and find out what it means to Fool on a stage. It gives you the opportunity to experience this foolishness. Once tasted it draws you in to discover a huge world, which you get to play in, create in and find your Fool in.Whilst performers, clowns, storytellers and musicians will all find inspiration for their stage-craft, the workshops offer a space for anyone to meet their inner fool and benefit wholeheartedly from the boons to be found in those inner landscapes..lawyers, farmers, nurses, and facilitators have all found their personal pot of gold on these workshops.

Continuing on after the weekend, Jonathan will be entering into some of seven levels of the “Structure of Fooling”. The structure provides tools and a direct means of opening to these transformative qualities that the Fool can offer us.
