Cave In: A Mask & Movement Workshop

Join Kyle Jozsa, Director of Education for theater troupe Wandering Aesthetics, for this expressive mask and movement workshop inspired by the creations and ideas of artist Nick Cave. Like Nick Cave’s soundsuits, masks can camouflage, creating a second skin that conceals race, gender and class, forcing the viewer to look without judgment. Recycle your creativity in this unique introduction to theatre techniques using found objects as masks in a relaxed and playful environment.
