Call out for performers interested in mask play

'Kickstart Open Space is an opportunity for artists and theatre companies to take advantage of the Dukes’ spaces, meet the creative team, ask advice and network with other artists.

We offer free training and we are looking for artists/performers interested in learning about playing with full face character masks.

Actors, musicians and performers from the North West and particularily from Lancaster are welcome.

Teatro Pomodoro, an award winning international theatre company based in Liverpool, is working on a new mask play for families that questions the Aesop's tale of the Grasshoper and the Ant. The fable describes how a hungry grasshopper, who spent the summer singing, begs for food from an ant when winter comes and is refused.

In a society that is obsessed with achieving goals and working hard, is there any space for creativity, or simply enjoying life?

Whilst learning how to perform and play with full face masks, we will use the theme of the show as a starting point for improvisation.

Where: The Dukes, Moor Lane, Lancaster, LA1 1QE 
When: 7th of August 11am 4 pm
Cost: Free
