Masks having a day out in the country with BigBigTrain,
filming for their new video.
As part of “OutMask’, Prosopon are exploring and rehearing for a Commedia Dell ‘Arte inspired ‘Cabaret’ style show. Mentored by Didi Hopkins we have now taken our experience and skills into the devising of ‘Lady WerthaChat’s Quadrille’ or ‘For every Master, a Servant’.
To be premiered at City Arts, Nottingham, friday 18th March 2012. In the spirit of Commedia this will be a rough-hewn entertainment, full of topical and local jokes.
Theatre of the people and for the people.
Our penultimate session, the final week of play and A Celebration of Our Light Night.
Next week we shall plan an exhibition of our project for an Open Day at the NGY, probably on sunday 28th February AND talk about the if and how we might take the work on further to be a street act as a part of ‘Nottingham Pride 2016’.
Day One: What a wonderful day, great group of performers, lovely space and sunshine all day. Inspiring or what? Playful, proper learning, embodied, relevant and alive.
Ten performers bringing a wealth of experience into the room along with open hearts and joyful enthusiasm. They are led gently though an alchemical process of an oral/ bodily tradition allied with imagination, improvisation and inspiration.
What a delight and joy to be part of this.
