THE STORYTELLING BODY

a masterclass in mask performance with the wonderheads


Acclaimed mask imagineers the Wonderheads bring you a weekend intensive in mask technique and the art of physical expression.

The class will explore fundamental mask technique, working to develop a greater physical awareness and an increased range and clarity of physical expression. The class will also delve into the emotional life of a mask, learning what it means to use full physical investment to bring a mask to life. And, bringing technique and physical investment together, the class will move into character development. Participants will explore the wide spectrum of physical choices available to them to create a total character body and fully realized character, from head to toe, through dynamic and articulate physical investment.


Masks are incredibly liberating and effective training tools for all performers and theatre makers, whichever style and medium you may work in. Stretch your creativity and push the boundaries of your physicality as you explore what it means to bring the other to life!


This is a physical workshop intended for Actors, Dancers, Directors, Writers, Teachers, Devisers, and anyone with a curious spirit.
