Nenagh Arts Centre, Co Tipperary, Ireland, 10th-12th May 2019

We aim to promote the art of clowning, through performance, education and networking. Bringing together performers from all genre’s of clown, from all parts of the world. Uniting them through play and humanity, celebrating the long history of clowning, but also striving to be relevant and contemporary forging a true complicity with todays audience.

At Amadán 2019 The clowning superstars Jef Johnson and Iman Lizarzu will be performing their full length solo clown shows “Open Space” and “Basquette Quese”. Masterclasses will also be presented by Jef Johnson, Iman Lizarazu and Simon Thompson.
