Authenticity Behind the Mask

production information

Join award-winning classical actor Greg Hicks for an interactive masterclass exploring a practical approach to working with classical masks.

With incredible access to rare masks used in seminal Greek tragedy productions across the UK, this two-hour masterclass will see participants learn and experience the paradox between the personal landscape inside the mask and technical skill needed to communicate with the audience, outside of it.
