Dates: Saturday November 2nd, 2019 and Saturday November 9th, 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.
In this two-day workshop, actors, directors and performance creators will embody and activate their understandings of manipulation, a process which culminates in the creation of each person’s own Mask of Manipulation. Each mask then becomes 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.
Prerequisites: This workshop is recommended for participants who have previous experience in the arts/community engagement, or who have attended our Introduction to Forum Theatre workshop.
