Since 2009 the WONDERHEADS have been bringing their unique style of physical performance to communities around North America and beyond, both on stage and in the classroom. Using masks made by WONDERHEADS Co-Head and master mask maker Kate Braidwood, the WONDERHEADS teach workshops, outreach programs and residencies to people of all ages and levels of experience, from single community workshops to in-depth intensives and university residencies.

SCHOOL or COMMUNITY WORKSHOP
Using masks created by WONDERHEADS’ mask maker Kate Braidwood, the WONDERHEADS introduce the fundamental process by which they bring a mask to life. Through a series of games and guided exercises, participants will focus on developing a greater understanding of physical expression and articulation and leave with a set of tools to help them better express themselves both on stage and off. This is a fun and transformative workshop meant for a variety of ages and skill levels.
In this ‘Behind the Mask’ Lecture-Demonstration the WONDERHEADS introduce mask performance to the audience and demonstrate the techniques of physical expression that give life to their full-face mask performances. A splash of insight into the history of mask mixed with entertaining demonstrations and audience interaction make for an engaging look at how physical expression plays a role in both theatrical storytelling and in our day-to-day lives.
