This book, from Europe’s leading Mask director and co-founder of the Trestle Theatre Company, provides a fascinating demystification of the process of using masks.
Full of simple explanations, and collating over twenty-five years’ experience of writing for, directing and acting in masks, The Mask Handbook examines how masks have the ability to play the fundamental game of theatre – the suspension of disbelief.
The Handbook includes:
-an introduction to the origin of masks
-advice on preparing, making and using mask
-tips on writing, devising and directing maskwork
-lots of fun and effective practical exercises
This accessible and inspiring handbook will empower teachers, directors and actors to fully explore the world of the mask.
