Masks & Movement Workshop

Masks & Movement Workshop

Workshop for grades K through 12th

This workshop revolves around theater, mask, mime, character development, theater/movement improvisation and the creation of short sketches. The goal of the workshop is to nurture a cognizance of the value of movement in mask theater. The program focuses on how to create theater with little or no spoken language. The main objective is to build a varied movement vocabulary, to cultivate a fertile and accessible imagination and develop good ideas into exciting and comprehensible theater. The workshop will help to improve one’s physical awareness through flexibility, strength, theater games, and focused controlled exercises. Students will gain an awareness of their habitual ways of moving, i.e. walk, stand, sit, etc., and gain a greater understanding of how their bodies are put together. We will touch on creating the ability to perform before an audience with energy, without nervousness.
