“Theatre should have risk, and the most wonderful risk of all is when an actor is surprising themself and living in the present moment, like a child on the playground.”
The Fascination of the Masks
What are the differences between good Impro and great Impro? Good acting and great acting?
It lies somewhere beyond wit, charm and precision.
In this workshop, gain some insight into the origins of improvised theatre and the heart of the performer through the use of masks and mask ideas.
Experience how the impulse of transformation can come from something other than your thoughts, your concepts, your ‘self’.
We will work with half (TranceMasks) and/or partial masks (noses, glasses, wigs, etc.) to give ourselves different inner and outer perception.
We will also play silent full masks to practice new physical and emotional states, to reveal the stories of the audience and the personal feelings that go along with them.
*2 day workshop with the master of masks, the world famous Steve Jerand.
