Introduction to Character MaskActors_Centre_
Wednesday 11th July (10.30 – 5.30pm)
The Actors Centre, London

This mask workshop is an introduction to Character full mask. 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.

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.

£30 – members

Past Workshops

“Thank you once again for your valuable, enjoyable, skilful and insightful work with the group last Saturday. I know everyone appreciated both what you opened up for us, and how you did it. I can summarise the unanimous feedback as “ more please”! “- Sharon Usher, Clown Teacher with Nose 2 Nose.

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

Vicky’s workshops into mask are both playful and educational. Her passion and experience shone throughout the workshop and made her a brilliant facilitator for the world of mask. I would highly recommend her and her workshops to anyone who wishes to discover the beauty and magic of masks.” – Sarah Baxter, Theatre Director

I really loved the workshop. I’ve never worked with masks of real people before. It’s a great tool for character work and it’s great to see them come alive.” – Kari McKenna, Actress & Writer

“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
