commedia dell’arte and half masks

Rather than recreate the stock characters from the 16th Century, we want actors to discover the spirit of commedia dell’arte through their play with the masks. Thus the actor has more freedom to explore and discover a character led by the mask itself. They discover a greater range of emotion and physical play. The masks can be played by any gender. Hair can be added or the paint job altered to suit your needs. Click image to expand the photo.
