acting with masks
Using interactive performance techniques, this theatrical workshop will explore issues which are relevant to the participating group or audience, focusing primarily on the use of mask as metaphor i.e. as a ‘front’ or presenting behaviour. This also allows participants to explore the thoughts, feelings and beliefs, which are hidden ‘behind the mask’.

beatboxing
Beatboxing originated from tribal cultures but has since found its way into mainstream music and rap. It is a form of vocal percussion connected with hip hop culture and is the art of producing drum beats, rhythm, and musical sounds using only your mouth, lips, tongue, voice, nasal passage and throat. It may also involve singing, vocal imitation of scratching and the simulation of horns, strings, and other musical instruments. This workshop will start you beatboxing and will teach you all the techniques you need to know to take your polyvocal performances to the next level.

Project suitable for:
