TAPS 127M: Introduction to Mask

This course is an exploration of the use of masks for the theatre - as a performance tool, a method of character creation, and a means of training for actors. Through the use of a wide range of mask types and techniques, we will identify and practice a variety of methods for performance and character creation. Areas of study include neutral mask, body mask, found-object mask, and character masks. Students will develop an understanding of breath, play, size and scale, stillness, ensemble, and character point of view. Mask study enables actors to become more physically clear, expressive, and present onstage in any form: it requires a heightened degree of awareness, observation, and embodiment - necessary attributes for any performer. Performance experience or movement training are not required, though they are recommended. All coursework will be practical and participatory. Some weekly outside rehearsal time required.
