Heads up for clowning treats from Morro and Jasp

Morro and Jasp proudly present:

Send In The Clowns

A new digital cabaret for Canadian clowns.

Toronto’s most beloved clown duo Morro and Jasp (Heather Marie Annis and Amy Lee) launch a new project to commission and highlight new work from a great diversity of clowns all across the country.

Join us at Send In The Clowns, a new digital cabaret!

Send In The Clowns aims to break through our communal feeling of isolation, and recreate the magic of festival tours and networking with other clowns – online.

Twice weekly until the end of the year, Morro and Jasp share a new digital short that has been commissioned from, and features, clowns from all across Canada and Turtle Island.

Rebecca Northan (Blind Date) (she shows you how to build a fort in your attic!

Derek Kwan (Dora Mavor Moore Award nominee for Outstanding Male Performer)

Doloreze Leonard (Founding member of Cirque du Soleil)

Vanessa Cardoso Whelan (Acclaimed street performer, St. John’s, NL)

Raj Gill and Nayana Fielkov (Vancouver)

Claire Ness (Yukon)

“Clown is the most honest form of performance that I have ever participated in. It is full of heart, truth, and vulnerability. I didn’t actually know how to truly LISTEN, until I started clowning. It has made me a better human being.” –Dora Award-winning performer Rebecca Northan

I can’t think of a better way to end this hellish year than clowns doing their thing.
