SECOND SESSION - SEX AND THE SINGLE CLOWN-Life in the Laugh Lane
After a career of over 50 years, I developed a special series on sexuality and the clown. A common deduction when people think of me is often associated with "sex, and drugs and rock and roll", but it is not so in the absolute sense. In reality, as the moral standards between human relations were redefined from decade to decade and allowed the clown to express the social standards reflected through comedy, parody, visual gags, cliches and provocation without concern of censorship but with extreme lightness, and the allusions misconstrued about sexuality.
I'm talking about a state of absolute innocence that allowed me to be able to do whatever I wanted, always "feeling" how far I could go.
Claudia and I will explore the freedom of sex and its disruptive energy that only the clown can play on the basis of its state of innocence, where everything is possible and everything is converted into creative fun, and fantasy. Thanks to the attainment of this state the public can let itself go and be accompanied on the comic paths of sexuality where it is possible to laugh! The art of the clown is based on that simplicity and the truth of that innocence we build strong, intelligent, and sophisticated performances on issues that are still taboo today!
