About us

Teatro del Corazón is a new, non-profit organisation that allows us to offer the authentic and open-hearted work of the Sacred Clown to more people, across the whole of Europe. It is based at Casa Saraswati Retreat Centre, a home for Fool at Heart, the School of Sacred Clowning that Didier Danthois started over twenty four years ago.

Didier Danthois
first trained in clowning and circus skills 33 years ago at the Fratellini Circus School (Paris). He studied Expressionist Dance, Clowning, and Indian Raga singing with an Indian master. He is also an Interfaith minister, a trained Biodynamic psychotherapist, spiritual counsellor and group facilitator. Didier has been inspired by the teachings of the Buddha for the last twenty five years, through the Khyentse lineage of Dzogchen and by the Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

Didier is the founder of the Fool at Heart School of Sacred Clowning and teaches, performs and directs internationally. He is the director of Casa Saraswati retreat centre and a member of "Asociación Teatro del Corazón".

His present work explores the field of emotional and spiritual resonance through the Fool at Heart in mime, dance, music and play, and also through Indian Raga singing, for both adults and children.
