Revealing the Mask workshop for Teachers

When? Thursday 8th February 2018
Where? Firstsite Learning Space

This energetic and creative full mask workshop, suitable for teachers, lecturers, and educators at any level, introduces Vamos Theatre’s approach to creating full mask theatre. It is perfect for practitioners working with young people, who wish to extend their knowledge and practice of mask and physical theatre techniques. No previous mask experience is necessary, just a willingness to laugh, play, get sweaty and be inspired!

In two hours you will:
• Be introduced to Vamos’s approach to full mask devising and performance
• Learn new and exciting methods of creating basic but detailed mask characters through non-verbal communication and hot-seating
• Gain an understanding of creating a mask “script”
• Explore the use of music and sound in mask work.

Maximum number of participants: 24

*Special Offer* Book before Christmas and get our Early Bird price of £20.

What a terrific and useful day at the Revealing the Mask workshop at Southbank! I walked in with little experience, but within hours I was devising an entire scene. Beautiful masks, clear instruction, and a joyful time for all. I highly recommend Vamos Theatre! Shelley Wyche – Revealing the Mask workshop
