Masks

Zootrophic rehearsal, London, 2016

We use masks in our improvisation courses. Full masks help to practice grounding, neutrality, and minimalism. Half masks help with vitality, abandonment, voice, physical expression and characters.

Our fascination with masks goes back to the dawn of times. In recent history, Jacques Lecoq and Keith Johnstone, among others, revived the tradition in both training and performance (see genesis for details). Playing with masks is a lot of fun and creates a sense of increased safety and danger all at once. Since introducing masks in our training, we've seen our students progressing faster towards creative freedom and shared pleasure. We use a set of Larval and a (modified) set of character masks from Strange Face in our teaching. We also us a set of half masks built by imprology's founder Remy Bertrand.
