Introduction to Character Masks

Introduction to Character Masks
Wednesday 11th June, 10.30 – 5.30pm
The Actors Centre

WHAT IS IT? For actors and physical performers, this mask workshop is an introduction to Character full mask.

HOW WILL IT WORK? In a dynamic group setting, we’ll use a range of full masks and work directly from body posture and movement to discover new characters and creative material for devising. It is fresh, playful and full of improv.

WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? You’ll learn the essential secrets to bringing masks alive, on stage and in application beyond mask for character work in theatre & film. This work will diversify your range of characters & physicality. It is a taster into physical theatre, mask & movement, ideal for those interested in Mocap, Mask work & Lecoq-based theatre.

Cost:
£30 (Actors Centre members)
£55 (non-members)

I have to say that I had never tried masks before as I was always a bit afraid of them, but it felt really nice to explore how you can play different characters only with your body, not using your facial expressions at all. I loved Vicky’s enthusiasm and playfull spirit when she leads workshops. She transfers such a good, humorous, calm and kind energy that makes people want to play and experiment!” – Marina Tselepi, Actress

“A fabulous day of play – In our daily lives we forget the importance & enjoyment of play, so today was a great way to remind myself of this!” – Becky Hoyle, Singer & Actress
