Product Description
In theatre, masks are worn on the face to disguise, for performance, and/or entertainment. When students begin mask work, they quickly realize that they very dependent on their faces and voices for expression and communication. Whilst wearing the mask, communication will be a challenge for students and eventually, they will need to resort to using their bodies to communicate. Mask work is beneficial for students who may feel insecure and hindered with moving their bodies and encourage them to explore bodily expression in order to communicate.

There are rules when using masks and it is essential for any students using masks to quickly learn and adopt them. Once students learn the rules, they will have a valuable tool in their drama toolbox which will serve them for work with Commedia dell’Arte, Greek Theatre, Noh Theatre, and work with Neutral Mask.
