The Spirit of the Mask

An investigation of Mask Performance Technique &
The work of the Physical / Transformative Actor
Weekend Workshop March 11 & 12, 2017

How do we transform ourselves into the other?  When one puts on a mask, one assumes the responsibility of bringing it to life by engaging in physical action—not merely animating it, but giving one’s self up to the service of that which it demands of us.  The actors, in order to play a mask (the other), becomes a physical conduit that allows the mask to resonate.

Mask / Michael Chekhov
The work with masks is taught by Pratik Motwani. Ted Pugh and Fern Sloan will be addressing the psycho-physical aspect of the Michael Chekhov technique through the basic fundamentals. You can read more about our faculty on our ‘faculty‘ page.
