The Theatre Mask

EA playful journey through the Physical Theater through different types of Theatrical Masks: Larval Masks, Expressive Masks, Half Masks, Masks made from recycled material.

The Neutral Mask & Devising Theatre

In this 3-day workshop, participants will explore the process of scenic creation based on Devising & Physical Theater. Devising Theater is based on improvisation and on the use of actor´s body as the main instrument of collaborative theater creation. The process of creation will be supported by the use of the neutral mask.

The Neutral Mask
It was introduced for the first time in the pedagogy of theatre at the Theatre School of the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier of Jacques Copeau and Suzanne Bing, at the beginning of the last century and later developed by Jacques Lecoq. The Neutral Mask is a tool for the actor's training.

It explores a new level of expression, a way of communication through gesture and the organization of movement in space. With the Neutral Mask, the actor explores the state of neutrality before any action, a state of receptiveness to everything around him. Free from dramatic expression, it is based on the state of calm, of availability, curiosity to the world. With no inner conflict, the actor's body reaches a state of silence and presence, available to the theatrical space.

The Neutral Mask focuses on the creative attitude of the whole body and increases the level of tension of the body.

The Neutral Mask enables the actors to discover the essential gesture and the economy of movement as well as to reach a higher control on their body in movement and their presence on stage.

Target group: The workshop is for experienced performers, actors and dancers who are interested in deepening their knowledge and for participants who are new to the work and would like to explore physical theatre.

For the training is requested to wear neutral black clothes with no embles or logos, to work barefooted or with non-slip socks and to bring a pair of black tights as head cover.
