Making Faces Theatre
- To share the experience and play of masks with all members of the community, giving everyone the opportunity to experience wearing a mask and to see as an observer the magic unfold.
- To develop new areas of mask research across the modalities of biological anthropology, anatomy, health & vocality in exploring our humaness.
- To collaborate between artforms using physicality to unlock the magic and illusion that mask can create – it is the door way to imagination.
