Mask and performance is an ancient art that was used in rituals and ceremonies from the beginning of time from many cultures from all around the world. The practise was usually used to please the gods and ancestors or to receive good harvests, to face cultural fears and initiations, celebrations and carnivals; and still is today. Students will experience a taste and glimpse of this ancient and mysterious art form. They will gain an understanding of what the mask represents, and will wear the mask and experience its essence and embodiment. Students will communicate through wearing masks and performing in them. The students will see, feel and wear various different cultural masks from all around the world; and develop and learn performance skills in relation to masks. This is a rich cultural workshop that allows students to understand themselves better and the masks they already see in the world and the personal masks that they use themselves.
