Masks and Trance with Steve Jarand

Learn how to use mask work to go directly into the heart of improvisation.

Masks and Trance with Steve Jarand

This workshop is a part of the public workshops component of the 2019 International TheatreSports Institute Conference & Festival which brings together some of the top improv instructors in the world.

The final chapter of Keith Johnstone’s book Impro describes tribal mask transformations and possession cults as well as a beginner mask class for western improvisers. Many have been perplexed by the mask chapter, but still more became intrigued, then haunted by the images it conjures and the potential power the mask holds. In this workshop we’ll use mask work to go directly into the heart of improvisation. We’ll employ the simple trigger of a mirror and sounds to discover the feeling of ‘following the mask’ and allowing it to discover itself. Come experience for yourself what happens when we conjure ‘the thing in the mirror.’
