Who are we?

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 offers a new home and retreat centre (Casa Saraswati) 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 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.

He works towards creating an art which celebrates the beauty of authenticity, compassion and the interdependence of all things and all people. His dedication is to encourage a greater understanding of the Wisdom of the Child.

Didier is the founder of the Fool at Heart School of Sacred Clowning and teaches, performs and directs internationally. He is the director of the association Teatro del Corazón and of ClownCare & Co., an organisation bringing Sacred Clowning into healthcare.

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.
