About This Book
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
