especially a sharp actor in interpreting not only the Commedia dell’ Arte masks, but "masks" even in contemporary theatre."

Contemporary Mask Performance

Summer workshop directed by Carlos García Estévez

This workshop is open for actors, dancers and performers exploring the physical and acting skills of Mask Performance. The participants will be expose to a deep study of the mask dimension of contemporary theatre.

The workshop approaches the basic elements involved in Mask Performance such as:

- Spirit of play and celebration
Human archetypes, caught in situations that range from tragic to comic,
- The architecture of Gestures,  
- Structure at the service of metamorphosis,  
- Improvisation,  
- Movement Technique,
- Musicality,  Timing,  Space,  
- Interaction and Direct contact with the audience,
- Everyday stories through human passions. 

"Through Carlos’s performance I discovered a different aspect of this dramatic territory which he successfully reinvented beyond the usual cliches with his lively approach of the great human feelings. I particularly appreciated Carlos’s intelligent and open minded interpretation touching us directly with his creative play of modern human comedy."  Pascale Lecoq - École Internationale de Théâtre de Jacques Lecoq.
