Saturday March 16th, 2019 and Saturday March 23rd, 2019
The “Masks of Manipulation”, an invaluable character development and mediation process designed by Simon Malbogat, gives face to each of the seven different emotional, mental, and spiritual manipulative forces we encounter both onstage and in daily life.
This workshop draws on Commedia dell’Arte-inspired masks to help participants acquire a deeper awareness of manipulation and oppression: how and why it happens, what it looks and feels like, and how to de-escalate it.
Actors, directors and performance creators will also take away from this two-day workshop a *Mask of their own creation*, which they will learn to use as a physical touchstone in processes ranging from character development to performance creation. This workshop, co-facilitated by Simon Malbogat and Peter Jarvis, is suitable for artists as well as educators and community leaders.
