Why Not Institute
Founded and directed by Angela de Castro, The Why Not Institute is totally dedicated to performance, teaching, professional development, resources and events connected to contemporary clowning, especially that within theatre traditions. The Institute runs workshops, develops performances and builds support networks for clowns and those interested in our approach. The Institute creates a space for people to try out clowning and for clowns to be recognised and validated. It also runs our unique space called The Land of the Why Not, a clowns playground, a space for artists to experiment or simply exist with their clown personas outside of rehearsal or performance. The Institute is currently fundraising for a major three-year development project around The Land of Why Not.
