We're delighted to be running a two-day masterclass in mask theatre as part of MimeLondon 2024.
Alongside our performances of Boy on the Roof (1st-4th Feb 2024), Creative Producer Honor Hoskins will be leading a weekend masterclass designed to give performers, teachers and theatre practitioners a thorough grounding in full mask technique.
Through exercises and shared exploration, this creative, high energy and inspiring 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 are also covered, including devising - both individually and as a mask ensemble.
Honor comments,"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."
Vamos Theatre often finds new performers for its productions through these masterclasses. We hope you can join us!
