DRAMA 205-225 — Masks II

1 credit per semester
Fall and Spring
Kathleen McNenny

Larval, animal, and character masks are used to expand students’ capacities to free their instincts, impulses, and imagination. The work demands that the actor fill the mask physically, vocally, emotionally, and psychologically in order to embody the life of the character. Mask work serves not only to release the student’s imaginative capacity for transformation, but to prepare the way for equally courageous characterization without a mask.
