A “Beautiful Scary Adventure” with Reza Salazar

[vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1507864279454{margin-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]Having been a professional clown since the age of 6, Reza Salazar is happy that he has been able to bring his clowning talents to the kids at RL’s summer camp.

Originally from Lima, Perú; Reza worked with his mother as a clown for several of his childhood years in different countries from Colombia to Argentina. Growing up, he developed a very big enthusiasm and interest for theatre and the performing arts. At the very young age of 10 he joined his first theatre company, at that moment, the path he would follow for the rest of his life was decided. Now he has worked on several films and theatre productions in NYC as well as appearing on t.v, recently he could be seen on two episodes of “Law and Order”.

In 2008 he was invited to be a participant in RL´s Shakespeare workshop and he came to stay! Working on Shakespeare in a room full of latino actors, made him feel comfortable and safe, to explore a discipline that he had never tried before. He enjoyed being part of a community where latin artists learn from  one another each, describing it as “A great experience”.

Now he gives back to this community by teaching clowning in RL’s summer camp. Campers learn through different kinds of games and, of course, the red nose which they earn by using their corporal expression to find their very own funny side.

“I’m still growing as an artist, but most importantly, as a human being”, he says. “And to me the ARTS comes from the most pure part of your essence. When we attempt to teach or share it, it can become a beautiful and scary adventure, because we have the responsibility to give not only something they can repeat, but something they can create and most importantly connect with that pure part of their essence.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
