Julia Lane

Julia Lane is a clown scholar, a term that she introduced in her doctoral dissertation to indicate someone who does not merely study clown but also studies as a clown, applying the principles of clowning practice to scholarly inquiry. As a performer, Julia’s work is process-oriented, interdisciplinary, collaborative, and frequently site-specific. She is artistically obsessed with the unexpected and her recent work has been focused on surreptitiously bringing clown performance into academic spaces.
