Jeff Raz has drawn on his life's work to write a pair of fictional narratives - one following a professional clown performing with Cirque du Soleil and one following a clown student who just wants a job in a circus. It captures the sweat, the sinew and the soul of clowning.

About the Author


Jeff Raz explores the intersection of circus, theater and music from many different angles - as a clown, an actor, a teacher, a director and a playwright. His 35 year career has taken him from remote Alaskan villages to Broadway, across the continental United States and to Europe, Japan and China. In 2000, Jeff founded The Clown Conservatory, the only comprehensive professional clown training program in the United States, and he directed the program until 2010. Jeff is now the Bay Area Casting Partner for Cirque du Soleil, the Artistic Director of the Medical Clown Project and a director with the global consulting firm Stand & Deliver. A graduate of the Dell'Arte International, Jeff has performed with Cirque du Soleil, The Pickle Circus, Vaudeville Nouveau and Make*A*Circus and in such theaters as Berkeley Repertory Theater, The Goodman Theater in Chicago, Marin Theater Company, The Kennedy Center, TheaterWorks of Palo Alto, The San Francisco and Marin Shakespeare Festivals and Lincoln Center Theater in New York.
