    No Exit Performance

    21st Century Skills Language Arts

    How does an artist build a mask and how does an actor act with one? Reading comprehension, theatrical performance, and visual art come together in this multiple-day workshop with the award-winning theatre company NoExit Performance. Young artists will explore character and plot development through making (paper and cardboard) and wearing theatrical masks. Designers and performers from NoExit will guide students, using themes from traditional storytelling, through the creation of an original character mask. Although originally designed as a multiple-day visual art workshop, a one-day “mask petting zoo” is available. The one day workshop explores acting only, no design work.
