Benjamin Domask has been training, performing, and teaching since 2010. As a child he studied the art of magic,
legerdemain, and prestidigitation. Then, while obtaining a degree in Psychology, Benjamin began practicing
juggling and sought performance opportunities, both in costume and out. As opportunities
increased, so did the need for more training.
In juggling he has trained under Jay Gilligan (DOCH), Thom Wall (Cirque du Soleil), and Benjamin Thompson (WJF).
In his homebase of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Benjamin found a variety of Circus and Theatre Clowns such as
Bob Rosen (Macalester College & Theatre de la Jeune Lune), Neal Skoy (Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey and
Yellow Tree Theatre), Gregory Parks (Kinoshita Cirucs and Children's Theatre Company), and Jon Ferguson
(WLDRNSS & University of Minnesota B.F.A Program).
In 2015, Benjamin attended Theatre de l'Ange Fou, a school researching Corporeal Mime under the direction of Steve Wasson and Corrine Soum, the last assistants of Etienne Decroux, the Father of Modern Mime. He has been training there as time allows ever since.
Benjamin is a Teaching Artist, as well. He supplements all of his training with academic research. Being a teaching artist allows him to share the skills he has learned while solidifying that knowledge as understanding.
Benjamin seeks to combine the skill and technique of juggling with the theory and philosophy of clown
under the aesthetic of corporeal mime. Through this he creates a unique blend of circus and theatre,
using skills, characters, and stories, to connect with audiences on a deep emotional level.
