Making Performance-Quality Masks

Simone Tani, Actor, mask-maker and facilitator

Making Performance-Quality Masks

The performance-trainer (who himself trained under Keith Johnstone) and mask maker explains that a well-made mask has a life of its own, shaping a performer’s energy and prompting the performer what to do. With skill and technique, the performer then gives shape and clarity to this energy. Because of this relationship, mask making in a facilitated workshop allows for discovery and experimentation that cannot be found in an art class. Mask-making is not merely about the technical aspects, more so for the practicing actor. Simone previously spoke on Front Row in 2015, you can listen to the full interview here.
