Benedicta Bertau: with the flow

workshops & events: call of the self. building community. experiencing & creating culture

Are you longing for meaning and creativity?

Do you wish for more non-virtual, human connection and true relationships - and the courage to step into these?

Do you believe in the transformative power of culture, beauty, and humanity in the best sense of each of these words?


As a performance/theater artist and teacher, I am dedicated to creating experiences in which human beings can re-connect with their creative individuality, and with each other. Being creative is a way to meet life, not a privilege or luxury reserved for "artists." Understanding each individual as a unique being with a physical body, soul, and spirit on an ever-evolving journey, I take movement and the arts of speech, theater, and improvisation as my point of entry.  To involve every aspect of the person, I use conversation and play, ritual and fun, hands-on activities and meditation - we are multi-faceted, and I am here to serve the unleashing of every person's potential. In a multitude of ways. In conversation with you.

Welcome to with the flow...

between chairs
outside of the box
head in the clouds
heart on the sleeve
on top of the world
feet in the grass
this is the home address of the poetic clown


As poetic clown I have appeared in a theatrical event on death, as a featured speaker at performance event on presence, as a "VIP" visitor to Paris and Santiago de Chile, as a master of ceremony at a wedding...
