Objectives and Content

Since the beginning of civilization MASKS have been central parts of rituals, ceremonies and theatre.

A mask might have an independent object character or might be part of or a costume in itself. The

mask is closely connected to the performative - it is tool to carry us into other realms; fictive,

spiritual or strange. It is an identity tool - to masks yourself is to become other.

In this workshop we will develop our own masks and we will read about and look at various examples

of what a mask is and how it has been used in different contexts.

Each students is asked to develop a character and the masks belonging to this character.

The Mask Replica course is the first of 3 related courses and might be combined with:

week 9: What you say is what you mean!

week 11: Manifestos & Masques
