THMD 164 - Mask Characterization


An introductory course in character development focuses on a process designed to release and open the student’s emotional and physical range, stimulate the imagination, place great emphasis on physical actions, acting with the whole body and ridding the student of self-conscious mannerisms. Through the use of oversized masks (and a series of challenging exercises), the student is allowed the freedom to become someone else. The work aims to integrate the student’s skills with his/her instincts, allowing impulses and the imagination to flow in conjunction with a flexible and vulnerable body. Formerly TH 114
