Larval Masks – Francesco Procopio

Mask Theatre Workshop with Francesco Procopio
05-06 December, 2020
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin

The aim of this workshop is to provide a basic knowledge of mask and movement theatre through an exploration of larval masks. Larval masks feature prominently in the Carnival traditions of Basel, Switzerland. First used in actor training by Jacques Lecoq, these masks represent semi-formed beings that are naive, curious and vulnerable. Originally very colourful, Lecoq decided to modify the masks, making them plain in colour and design. This simplicity allows actors to embody psychologically complex states, inviting them to ‘complete’ the mask using the movements of their own body.
