Mask Making and Devising residency

About the residency

Our Mask Making and Devising Residency gives school, college or university students a thorough and rounded experience of full mask.. Students and their teachers design, make, and paint their own masks and are introduced to full mask performance, learning about focus, character, movement, and stillness. Students are guided through devising a series of theatre scenes with the aim of creating a performance at the end of the week. A special feature of our residencies is the chance to work with a professional theatre musician, who provides a live musical accompaniment to the performance elements.

Genuinely stimulating and challenging without making any girl feel it was beyond her. It was a thrill and a joy to see my girls engage in pure, unashamed creativity...A great learning experience and good fun to boot!

The workshops were a brilliant experience for the children, and staff who had never seen mask work before. The staff were blown away by the things that the children achieved. Every school should try it!
