Dent – Introduction to Mask Work

Presented by: Richard Dent

This workshop will investigate character masks in the style of the Commedia Dell’Arte and its function in heightening and specifying the actors range of performance.

Mask work is a significant root for the actor’s physical and emotional muscles. Understanding the place of mask work in history and how it finds its way into the work we see today gives you a deeper, rounded knowledge of the craft you are pursuing.
