Mask Workshop

We build a mask from everyday materials.

 

Workshop for everybody:

Age:                      6 to 99 years
Duration:              4 hours
Material:               supplied by MUMMENSCHANZ

Requisites:           hall approx. 40m2 (possibly with stage), good lighting, tables and chairs. Possibility of darkening the stage, black material.

The participant makes his/her own mask according to his/her imagination. Craftsmanship is not a must, as each one of us can build something – that can even be used again in future  - out of everyday objects, ex. water carriers, etc.

Necessary items (tools, adhesives, etc.) will be brought along by Floriana Frassetto. Mimetic skills are dealt with. Time is taken for relaxation and warm-up, for collecting one's thoughts and getting accustomed to the mask. Then only, individual and collective improvisations may start on stage.

Later, a spontaneous story is first rehearsed then played as a short programme. People are welcome to come and watch, yet only the short programme, the workshop being the main concern.

Twelve-hour workshops can be organized on week-ends on request.
