Trance and Full Masks
The workshop is an introduction to Keith Johnstone's Trance Masks and Full Masks. Wearing a mask is a powerful way to unlock creativity and to discover how to be expressive, releasing the pressure on us to “create” as we let the mask lead us, and giving us a new experience of our own possibilities as performers.
Bouffon is a style of satirical and dark theatre that is created from the viewpoint of the "outcasts" of society. These outcasts are those that were sent away, deemed unfit to share our way of life, the life of the "beautiful" people. These creatures are then permitted to crawl their way back to perform a show for the people in society. The Bouffon proceed to mock and defile the views and principals of everyone who sent them away, showing the hypocrisies of their lives.
