Mask Demonstration


This is an evening of full-mask improvisations.


We will meet a variety of characters - innocents, fools and lovers.


We will watch them play, dance and try to make something interesting out of a single sheet of paper.


We invite you to an evening of unscripted, spontaneous fun.
