call 816-305-8188 to reserve
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.
