No Exit Performance
About the artist
NoExit Performance is a body of multidisciplinary artists who create and present innovative performance experiences within diverse spaces. We seek to creatively engage our audiences by promoting civic and social dialogue between artists and our community.
Masks and Scripts
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.
