The world of the Larval Mask
3 day intensive Mask workshop
with Richard Kimberley
The world of masks is something in the realm of magic. When a person just sits and breaths whilst wearing a (working) mask. Even without doing anything, without acting, without moving. A space is created, silence is formed. Dreams form rapidly in the viewers imaginations. @What is this world?" We are sucked into this world. Masks have the power to teach performers the most valuable lessons about themselves and to take audiences to worlds they never knew they could reach.
About the workshop
Larval Masks were inspired by the Basel Mask festival in Switzerland. Physical Theatre revolutionary Jaques LeCoq took these masks and used them to teach actors. The start of expression.
With a mask we see everything, every movement, every fault. We learn clarity in movement & expression, How to tell story using space and tension. It is a technical training which then comes to life through your imaginations and play. The masks are simple, there world is simple. When the technique and play comes together a dream is created in our minds. the world is rich and livid. Im interested in how we hold this dream and play with it.
