9780415414364: The Mask Handbook: A Practical Guide

This book, from Europe’s leading Mask director and co-founder of the Trestle Theatre Company, provides a fascinating demystification of the process of using masks.

Full of simple explanations, and collating over twenty-five years’ experience of writing for, directing and acting in masks, The Mask Handbook examines how masks have the ability to play the fundamental game of theatre – the suspension of disbelief.

The Handbook includes:

  • an introduction to the origin of masks
  • advice on preparing, making and using masks
  • tips on writing, devising and directing maskwork
  • lots of fun and effective practical exercises.

This accessible and inspiring handbook will empower teachers, directors and actors to fully explore the world of the mask.
