“Give a man a mask and he will tell you the truth.”
– Oscar Wilde
Masks have played a central role in ceremonies and rituals throughout time. Even today, masks have incredible importance to our culture. Masks can act as a powerful instrument for both the actor and the audience, providing the performer a sense of freedom and expression otherwise not felt.
unMASKed will explore this potential as students will be asked to work with neutral masks, discovering their own confidence and creativity. Students will learn to work physically, using their bodies to help facilitate the storytelling process.
The class will culminate in a final presentation the students will develop based on their work with the masks.
*There will be a final presentation on Saturday, November 19th*
Saturdays @ 11:30 – 12:30 AM (9/17 – 11/19)
This class will be held at:
Akron Center For Art Music & Performance
118 W. Market St. • Akron, OH 44303
