The mask is
the face you wear,  
the actor’s body,
the choral body,
the writing of the show.

TEAM

APPLICATION

THE  THREE MONTH PROGRAM

The Mask is the guiding theme throughout the program.

We seek to understand the Mask in its deeper significance as a structure through which the invisible comes to life in a tangible form.

The Mask is the most important tool within the foundation of theatrical expression at all levels: directing, acting, writing, teaching, and creating original pieces.

 

Its profound significance, its functions, its uses, and its constant demand for authenticity require a rigorous technical practice and, simultaneously, a generous openness toward play
