Join in with this creative, high energy and inspiring masterclass from Vamos Theatre, giving participants a thorough grounding in full mask technique.
Through exercises and shared exploration, this two-day 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 will also be covered, including devising - both individually and as a mask ensemble.
Presented by Honor Hoskins, Creative Producer at Vamos Theatre, the masterclass is suitable for everyone interested in mask, especially actors, performers and theatre practitioners, aged 18+. Vamos Theatre strives to increase the pool of available mask talent in the UK and often finds new performers for its productions through these masterclasses.
