Angela Hopkins, clown, is the founder, artistic director and host for hopkins/workshop for clown research. Angela graduated with NosetoNose completing the facilitators training in London. Angela holds clowning workshops and further education courses throughout Germany and internationally. Angela thrives in the spaces between cultures and languages, ideals and realities, the mundane and the absurd, tragic and comic. Clowning opened up the doors to all these inspiring worlds and more. Born in Bristol (UK), raised both in the UK and in Germany, shy by nature, mother of four, co-founder of Timeout a holistic farm for youth with special needs, Waldorf English teacher and project manager, Scottish touring cook, and clowning facilitator.

In 2018/19 the idea came to me to create a one-woman-clownsolo "What`s love got to do with It?" .
A clown solo illustrated with life themes - a journey with a backpack and obstacles to overcome. What`s love got to do with it?
Always a “work in progress” with inspiration and improvisation - every performance lives from the potential of the moment.
Performed in March / Sept. 2019, February 2020 (Potsdam, T-Werk)
Bookable on request.

Facilitator Nose to Nose Germany
As trained and accredited Nose to Nose facilitators, we are committed to inform our practice of teaching clowning from a person-centered approach to exploring the inner clown. We stay true to this spirit of clowning by positively respecting each person’s creative process. It is our conviction that by focusing on an individual’s process, encouraging emotional expression, we get to the heart of working with the theater clown. In clowning, we support the search for authenticity, freeing the imagination and nurturing connection to oneself and others which in turn enriches both the social and personal dimensions of our lives.
