Calvin Petersen

Calvin is a performer, director and clown from Wellington, New Zealand and currently based in Toronto. He has trained at Toi Whakaari: The New Zealand Drama School, where he earned his Masters (MTA: Directing) specialising in creating collaborative devised theatre. Since graduating Calvin has directed, created and toured multiple productions around New Zealand, enabling the existence of everything from, DOGS, a clown-run secret eating society, A Smidge of Pidge, a one-pigeon show about an existential crisis, and txt if you get lost, a 70 minute non-stop poetic party. Clown, Bouffon and Improvisation training have all had a strong influence on his practice; none more-so than his time at the MCCP. He is currently developing a show for the Toronto Festival of Clowns, Sharon and Steve, with his performance company Remote Viewing.
