The Mask Cycle is my basic, 8-week mask and movement workshop. The emphasis is on finding the means to support and animate an object—a mask or puppet—that is not a part of you. The progressive study of stillness, awareness, breath and ease is the key. The workshop will utilize Neutral Masks, Larval Masks, Emotion Masks, Character Half-Masks, and masks made from the actors' own faces. The purpose is to study movement on the stage, whether you continue to work with masks or not.
