OCTOBER 11TH - 12th  2017

Melbourne AUSTRALIA

The mask simplifies, rendering readable and immediate the movements of the soul.

 

OPEN TO: performers, theatre teachers, directors, playwrights, designers, choreographers, puppeteers, musicians with professional experience in their field, and anyone else interested in expanding their creative tools or wishing to further their knowledge with masks and physical theater.

 

WHY TRAINING WITH MASKS?

The mask, with the multitudes of meaning that it carries, constitute the basic elements one must face when practicing the art of theatre.

The mask, covering the face of the actor and all its myriad possibilities for expression, completely transforms our way of researching the body’s expressivity and its relation to the space.

This gives the actor a new sense of his own presence, an emotional fluidity, an amplified and richer dramatic expression, a gestural language full of emotion, a return to a more global perceptual experience, and it allows us to rediscover the innate dimensions of play.

The body and the space are the truly essential referents which allow us to find a deeper authenticity in stage presence and in performance.

This is fundamental for lively and authentic theatre actors as much as for scenographers, directors, writers, choreographers, puppeteers and dancers.
