Play in a Day with Nick – ‘Mask’
An intense day of fun and creativity culminating in a short performance of a totally new play, ‘Mask’. Masks have become a familiar site recently. How do we feel about wearing them? A mask protects us and others – but what else does it conceal? In ancient Greek theatre most drama was performed with masks, Italian Commedia dell Arte uses masks to comic effect. What really lies behind a mask?
Working together you will create a short performance from scratch and then perform to an invited audience and/or film the piece too. It will be hard work, but fun and rewarding.
