Teatro Strappato, through their workshops, offer the possibility to share with other theatre professionals and enthusiasts the “tricks” hidden behind the masks.
BEHIND THE MASK
he most important lesson we have to learn by working with masks is that the true art of the actor is precisely “behind the mask”, in his effort to make something that exists only in our imagination come to life, and that we really need only one thing to make theatre: the actor’s body.
“Behind the Mask” is the work of an actor who has to develop a technique of movement and construction of the character that gives life to this powerful object. In this workshop we propose a technique called “historical-anthropological reconstruction of the characters of “Commedia dell’Arte” that allows us to introduce participants to the use of the mask, following the fundamental principles of interpretation of the 9 basic archetypes of “Commedia dell ‘Arte”.
