Notes

CLINT BOLSTER is a Clown, Physical Actor, Mask Theatre Specialist, Stilt Performer & Trainer and Teaching Artist from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. With over 18 years' committed to developing new works and training extensively, Clint regularly performs in Australia and internationally in the United Kingdom, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. Clint's repertoire of original performance works of Homunculus Theatre Company (In Schools Programs) - www.homunculustheatre.com.au, Manoeuvre Roving Stilt Performers (Roving Stilt Acts) -www.manoeuvrestiltperformers.com, The Mask Family (Highly Visual and Interactive Roving Mask Theatre Acts) - www.themaskfamily.com and HIGH TEA with BOOFF (a regal, mischief-loving high-status impresario clown) - www.highteawithbooff.com; are highly active throughout Australia, New Zealand & Asia, and have extensive annual programming in regional Australia, particularly in the community, cultural and education sectors. He was recently accepted into the Cirque Du Soleil and Slava Snow Show database of potential Clowns for future productions and is a proud Queensland Member and Mentor for The Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance, and Board Member for Indel-Ability Arts. He has developed an incredibly reliable and robust local and international network. His unique and innovative creations are represented by over 70 international production houses and arts agencies worldwide and have amassed a live global audience in the millions. Website: www.clintbolster.com ★★★★★ “In an age where clowns reveal our hidden self, Clint Bolster’s clown is both sharp and insightful, yet aware of the provocations which are designed to unlock insights. His clown/s invites us to unite as we focus on the particular, the unusual, the rare. A great performer, teacher and human, Clint brings all of himself and leaves us with a unique insight about ourself after seeing the world through the tears and the fears of a clown, which always provokes laughter from places rarely observed in our daily life. BOOFF, like Clint’s other clowns, is a masterwork, that will leave you feeling uncomfortably settled. In a world of clowns where leadership is no barrier to success, it is good to see the clown within ourselves and invite them into our midst so that we may learn their masterfully mischievous mannerisms. (PS: Clowns learn by observing us.)” Paul Bishop, Actor & MP - (AUS). ★★★★★ "If you don’t have children, find some and take them or simply take yourself – you’ll love it!””– Broadway Baby, Edinburgh, “… the audience, children and parents alike, are in constant fits of laughter. At the end of the show, I heard one child ask, ‘Can we watch it again?’” Informed Edinburgh - (UK). ★★★★★ "…a friendly version of Jack Nicholson as the Joker leading the way, we laugh, we gasp, clap and gape!” Last Minute Live - (AUS). ★★★★★ "Such an amazing talent - BOOFF for Primeminister!" Audience Member ★★★★★ "We went to HIGH TEA with BOOFF in Townsville with a group of 6 and had just a superb time!!! One of my friends on the walk home said she would die happy now that she has been BOOFFED!!!" Audience Member ★★★★★ "Simply wonderous! Stunningly dark, delightfully twisted with a hint of romance!" Audience Member ★★★★★ "HIGH TEA with BOOFF was an exceptional one-of-a-kind performance. It is like nothing you have ever experienced before, and one you won’t soon forget! Definite must see for all festival goers." The North Australian Festival Of Arts - Townsville​ ★★★★★ "Welcome to a perfect tea party. Excellent china cups, high quality brews, and just the right amount of scandal. BOOFF has outdone himself, outfitting the most scrumptious tea room in respectable suburbia. A black-and-white instagrammers daydream, the tea room is filled with beautiful knickknacks and fabulous curiosities, and a set of ostentatious parlour chairs with just room enough for ten. Upon arrival we pour each other a delicate cup of an aromatic black tea, and snack upon quintessential Australian cookies. Choice of digestive or iced vovo is a charmingly surreal, and quite like we’ve stepped into an episode of Neighbours circa 1985. This is not so much a show as an intimate gathering, where we catch up and share gossip and stories. We are treated to a beautiful trip down memory lane, where the stories are all most genteel, at least, mostly genteel, with a touch of the macabre, and a heavy dose of the ludicrous. A delightfully imposing clown, when captured in the intimate setting of the tea room, BOOFF becomes even larger than life. I felt quite giddy, it’s such a space to step into, an otherworldly experience. If you were to enter this beautiful parlour from the chaos of a summer festival, you would be instantly transported to another world entirely. In this BOOFF has done that most perfect of magic theatre tricks, he has made the outside go away and the inside somewhere else. As I write my reflection, I am sipping upon a tea that was gifted as I left the parlour; “A Ceremonial Sample of Finest Loose Leaf tea.” And so it is that I am left with an impression of consummate finesse. Every detail complete, every element of the perfectly manifest. HIGH TEA with BOOFF ought to be the most coveted invitation of any budding socialites dance card." Nadia Jade -Nothing Ever Happens in Brisbane ★★★★★ "HIGH TEA with BOOFF was exactly what the doctor ordered for Cairns Festival. Staff, crew and audiences across all ages and backgrounds, were at once mystified and left in stitches and sometimes shaking their heads wondering what just happened. The sights and sounds associated with the work created a buzz in our region that is still rippling, and has ignited many ideas for capacity building and development within our own region. A fantastic team to work with, communication lines are always open and negotiable – it just makes the experience even sweeter. Can’t wait to see what else Booff comes up with!" Roz Pappalardo Artistic Director - Cairns Festival ★★★★★ "BOOFF is an absolute dream to work with. Watching BOOFF entertain the full house last night made me (the producer) very proud. Every audience member I spoke to after the show told me how much they enjoyed his bell routine. BOOFF has a unique ability to read a crowd and make them feel better when he’s done with them. I guess the standing ovation speaks for itself...." Tom Oliver (AUS) - Producer -The Dionysus Cabaret
