Mask Devising residency

About the residency

Vamos Theatre's Mask Devising Residency offers the chance of an immersive learning experience for school, college and university students. Participants are introduced to the techniques of full mask theatre, learning about focus, character, movement and stillness. They are guided through devising a series of scenes with the aim of creating a short theatre performance at the end of the residency. All participants are involved in the creative devising process and the final showing. Residencies can explore a specific theme, and a special feature is the chance to work with a professional theatre musician, who provides a live musical accompaniment.

By removing the medium of verbal speech, Vamos created a truly democratic performance space for our students and empowered them to communicate profoundly, hilariously and emphatically. Mask theatre speaks no language but human language, one we can all understand, and I was both amazed and moved to see our students flourish throughout the week Vamos spent with us.
