A Larval Mask Workshop ~ By Heidi Van

Byrd Productions & The Fishtank presents:
A Larval Mask Workshop By Heidi Van
Sunday, April 19, 1-4 pm
at The Just Off Broadway Theater


In the world of larval masks everything is at the edge of beginning. Building on neutrality of presence the actor begins to navigate space and physicality in exercises and improvisations that:- simplify and amplify gestures,- explore the mask as a moving structure in the space, with forms, trajectories, dynamic oppositions and to find the body who can reveal it,- explore the animalistic and fantastic dimension of the mask.

Heidi Van, Actor/Creator Co-Founder/Curator of Fishtank Performance Studio,
Producing Artistic Director of HYBRID: a theatre collective,
dubbed The Queen of Dead Art Forms by Alan Schuerstel
is best known for performing and creating pieces in the red nose clown style.  Van is a 2010 recipient of the MASTERMIND AWARD, a Charlotte Street Outstanding Generative Performing Artist Finalist and an KC Arts Fund Inspiration Grant recipient.  Van’s most widely produced original clown play is The Coppelia Project: a clown ballet in three acts  that debuted at the 2008 Kansas City Fringe Festival.
