“In an age where clowns reveal our hidden self, Clint Bolster’s clown is both sharp and insightful, yet aware of the provocations which are designed to unlock insights. His clown/s invites us to unite as we focus on the particular, the unusual, the rare. A great performer, teacher and human, Clint brings all of himself and leaves us with a unique insight about ourself after seeing the world through the tears and the fears of a clown, which always provokes laughter from places rarely observed in our daily life. BOOFF, like Clint’s other clowns, is a masterwork, that will leave you feeling uncomfortably settled. In a world of clowns where leadership is no barrier to success, it is good to see the clown within ourselves and invite them into our midst so that we may learn their masterfully mischievous mannerisms. (PS: Clowns learn by observing us.)”

"Clint Bolster magnifies his movement and facial expressions as the shady salesman. He has had a decade to familiarise himself with the art of clowning, and it shows in this performance"
