The unthinkable meets the ridiculous. Pushing the boundaries of clowning yet further.....

With the global tsunami of idiocy rising ever higher in the real world, nonsense is the new truth and the only way to make sense of the world. Clowns have been making the meaningless, the taboo and the unthinkable into digestible fun for millennia. Why would they baulk at the present opportunity?

Citizens of Nowhere are an international company of highly-trained clown performers based in London, led by Jon Davison.

R&D Project 2019


We were overjoyed to be awarded a project grant by Arts Council England to research and develop new clown performance, training and dramaturgy over five months March-July 2019.

We explored how to bring to performance some of the amazing clowning that so often occurs in workshops but never reaches public view.
