An honest portrait of a true artist set to revolutionize performing arts

The Project

Hi everyone! My name is Martha Olufsen, and I am raising money for my short film "Bobo - The Intermission Clown".

-----

Introducing Bobo. A clown artiste danois determined to change the rushed and capitalist ways of performing arts.  

Bobo aims for nothing but the stars - witness the transcending journey towards them in this raw and honest portrait.

However bumpy this voyage may be, Bobo never compromises with the ambitious ideal of true art.  

.

"Ground-breaking"

"Heart-aching and breath-taking"

"A window into the astonishing mind of a serious artist"

.

- quotes by famous people and magazines

"Bobo - The Intermission Clown" is a piece of absurd, psychological, tragic clown comedy with a generous amount of self-irony mashed into a vlog-style mockumentary
