“I dream of a world where a woman, too, can claim the job of village idiot, or be anointed as the skewering high jester of the realm. A magnificent world with women clowns!”


                                                        - Kendall Cornell



Clowns Ex Machina is a troupe of all women clowns creating gleeful theatre together. Kendall Cornell, creator and director, formed the troupe to explore and reveal the unique resonance of women clowns and their special impact en masse.   The troupe’s theatre pieces blend vignettes, songs, dances, heart, and humor to make fresh, sophisticated, and inspiring theatre.  Gliding from delicate vulnerability to unabashed ridiculousness, Clowns Ex Machina surprises with their gusto and poetry  -- uplifting and making community of the audience.
