Mask – Advance Orders

‘Both a practical guide and an eloquent manifesto.’ —David Wiles, Professor of Drama, University of Exeter

This is a new book for practitioners in mask drama. Richly illustrated with beautiful photography and line drawings, it expresses the power of masks for education, therapy and drama. As well as detailed instructions on how to make different masks, Mike Chase shares extensive workshop exercises for movement, voice work, games, improvisations and general acting skills. He also explores the four temperaments: the Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic and Melancholic.
