Over the coming months we will be introducing our key-note speakers for The Playing Human Conference in London on 27-28 September 2018.
It is with great excitement that we welcome back Pady O’Connor – Clown Doctor and Artistic Director of MeeMee Theatre. Pady showed a few of his exciting methods last year in London and he is back to play with us!
Pady works his magic in North-East England as Clown Doctor, Dr Johan Cherrywolf, or Jonah to his mother, where he comes from a family of wrestlers called the Von Wolf’s. He was set to follow in his family’s footsteps, but Johan was walking one day, lost his footing and stumbled. He found himself hanging onto the edge of a cliff. Just as his grip started to loosen, and the end seemed inevitable, a small hairy leg and hoof lifted him to safety. Standing nearby was a deer – one crystal tear fell from its eye and it then vanished. That moment will stay with Johan forever, and he decided then to help in life in whatever way he could.
And that is just the introduction to Pady’s alter ego, Dr Johan Cherrywolf… there is MUCH more to his work and he will be sharing some of it with us.
