Those who have booked for Revealing The Mask with Vamos Theatre can expect an email from Shoreditch Town Hall with any information you should know ahead of the workshop on Thursday 26 January.
Vamos Theatre, the UK's leading full mask theatre company, is holding a one-off talent development workshop as part of London International Mime Festival 2023.
Co-delivered by Vamos Theatre’s Artistic Director Rachael Savage and Creative Producer Honor Hoskins, Revealing the Mask Residency is a 2-day workshop for everyone, especially actors, performers and theatre practitioners. This creative, high energy and inspiring session will give participants a thorough introduction to full mask technique.
Through exercises and shared exploration, the workshop 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, exploring devising both individually, and as a mask ensemble.
Please note: The session on Sunday will be filmed for a short video. If you would prefer not to be filmed, please email email@example.com or let a member of staff know when you arrive on the day.
Vamos Theatre devises and tours accessible, humorous and fearless work which showcases the best in full mask performance. The company is dedicated to making work based on stories of real people, and its productions are rooted in true-life experiences and events. At the heart of Vamos Theatre’s ethos is a commitment to working practices that engender genuineness, generosity, respect and consideration of others.
Established in 2006, Vamos Theatre is an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation, and is based in Worcester, UK.
