March 2018 Buffoonery Workshops with Trilby Jeeves is pleased to support Buffoonery Workshops with Trilby Jeeves – coming to Vancouver on March 24th and March 25th.

Crack open your unique BOUFFON, romp with a BOUFFON family, embrace your lovely imperfections and never experience the world the same way again.

Through the unique technique of “Buffoonery” the performer has an opportunity to explore extreme play so as to be highly in touch with her/his body. This play can be translated over to scene or monologue work.

For the non-actor, exploring “Buffoonery” can free you to a place of stronger self confidence and fun freedom. It can also be a great tool for team-building.


  • Getting out of your head and away from that inner critic
  • Gaining a freer, in the moment and a more connected performance
  • A tool to make you “director proof” (Have you had a director that just doesn’t seem to draw out your best performance?)
  • A tool to deepen your play
  • Knowing your full limits (it’s easier to pull back, than to put on)
  • Rediscovering the joy of “play”


  • A safe place to explore
  • Introductory exercises to connect you with the others
  • Finding your bouffon with the others
  • Laughing a lot
  • Sweating a lot
  • Forgetting about the time, and your inner critical voice
  • Experiencing exercises/play that will reveal more about you to you
  • Finding your bouffon, a friend forever
  • Discovering a very playful way to explore subtext of scene/monologue work
