Om Workshop

A unique opportunity: In the nature of the magical island of Stokkøya we invite you to a clown workshop in residence with Pablo Algañaraz from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In this workshop we will work the clown technique impregnated by the natural environment of the seacoast, the caves and the hidden corners of the island.

This will inspire to expand the connection of each person and his own poetic universe. The pleasure of playing and listening to our impulses aim to bring us to a state of clown presence.

We will deepen the practice of body dynamics and sound, being attentive to diversity of musicalities, rhythms and environments that come from ourselves and the natural surroundings. You are welcome to dive deeper into the art of clowning.

Come and make international bridges in a hidden treasure of an island.

A unique stay

Stokkøya is one of the most beautiful islands outside of Trondheim with a magical atmosphere that attracts artists and people from all over the world.

Surrounded  by the  ocean this place provides a beautiful unspoilt countryside with mountains, caves and lakes to explore. We will have the unique opportunity to gather at the most pleasant time of the year, during the white nights. With sunlight both day and night we are able to explore and get inspired by the beauty of the outside environment, being able to dive into our own poetic nature.

The residence will take place in Stokkøya Sjøsenter, situated next to Mid-Norway’s  longest sand beach. The working place will be at different open-air locations. The work will also take place in the working room in the first floor of the guest house, where we will live together during the residence. You can see more pictures and information of the place here: and
