PAS 2018: Standby list opening lecture 'Clowns: The Art of Losing'

06 September 2018

20:00 - 21:00

Lecture: CLOWNS: THE ART OF LOSING
Leo Bassi - Clown

In this lecture, the famous clown Leo Bassi gives his view of the world of circus and clowns. A view that differs from the romanticised version held by most people. In his view, circus is a much more politicised environment, where the working class finds pride in a utopian adventure under the big top. Bassi sees circus as the revenge of the losers, where poor and common people can prove that they too can dream and live adventurous lives. The clown goes one step further: by glorifying the fool, he destroys the power of power and opens the way to a classless, democratic society where laughter is the great equaliser.

PROJEKT RAKIJA
Urban Balkan

Projekt Rakija is a band formed and led by Bosnian producer and guitar player Igor Sekulović. Igor was born in Bosnia-Herzegovina and fled the war to live in the Netherlands. The band combines Balkan music with a 'high-energy' mixture of groovy beats, exuberant Balkan horns and a screaming rock guitar.

The band is also a community of creatives, which is not only writing and performing on a musical level, but is also creating visual arts to make their whole look innovating and original.
