Dr Ira Seidenstein is a professional clown, clown trainer and academic exploring the interface
between science and the theatre stage (broadly defined): he is a lecturer, actor, performer, director and
author. In the first part of his interview, he explains his approach to research, his understanding of
clowning, and the ways he teaches his students to discover the elasticity of their own imagination, and the
creativity and performative powers a clown needs on stage.
