Presented in association with Mime London
Join in with this creative, high energy and inspiring masterclass, giving participants a thorough grounding in full mask technique.
Through exercises and shared exploration, this two-day masterclass introduces mask characterisation, mask physicality, and techniques such as clocking, stillness and isolation, helping to build confidence and understanding of mask performance. More advanced full mask skills and a deeper understanding of the form will also be covered, including devising - both individually and as a mask ensemble.
This masterclass is suitable for everyone interested in mask, especially actors, performers and theatre practitioners, aged 18+. Vamos Theatre strives to increase the pool of available mask talent in the UK and often finds new performers for its productions through these masterclasses.
Led by: Honor Hoskins, Creative Producer at Vamos Theatre
Honor writes, "This masterclass promises to be challenging, insightful, creative and fun, and I want everyone in the room to feel their confidence in mask, non-verbal theatre, physicality and devising, grow and flourish over the two days. We love meeting new performers, teachers and theatre makers, and I hope to inspire them with new skills and new learning that expands their opportunities - often the talent in the room is so exciting we end up working together way beyond the workshop space."
