Acting Without Bullshit: What can mask work teach us about acting?

Location: Leicester Adult Education College 

Room: JBB

This is a workshop about what mask-work can teach us about acting. We’ll work with half-masks and full-masks, experience how they work, what they tell us about character, and the game of being someone else.
