Making masks for the stage

3 – 12 June 2024  @ STUDIO FLÖZ, Berlin, D
Workshop canceled!

Mask making - like all activities in theatre and devised performance - is part of a multi-layered creative process. The mask maker is a creative artisan working at the intersection of the fine arts and the performing arts.

This 10-day workshop will offer each participant the opportunity to create a self designed full mask from paper mache. In addition to an exploration of the craft of mask making, participants will be encouraged to develop a strong sense of creative ownership. Starting from their own initial ideas and designs, participants will search for their own form. They will develop a character all the way to a form modeled in clay before creating the full mask in paper mache. The entire process will be supported throughout via critical feedback and helpful advice.

Alongside technical information about the process of mask making, participants will learn about essential factors such as asymmetry, anatomy, mask as projection, light, etc., which help the mask to play on stage.

Hajo Schüler is director, performer, mask maker, Artistic Director and co-founder of the company FAMILIE FLÖZ.
