Masque Theatre

Masque Theatre creates original works embodying masks,movement, dance, music, puppets, and the voice. "Love Is...", a new show with three talking characters with non-verbal situations designed to explore the varied and mysterious aspects of the elusive term, LOVE. Poetry, songs, images, questions and answers imbue this one-person tour de force. "This World, the Next and Then the Peach Orchard" -- Family or adult performances available. Vignette style and adaptable to time and space limitations. One person, non-verbal production. Workshops are also available in movement, masks, and mask making. Mask making includes paper pattern masks for the very young; burlap masks from 10yrs to adult, life masks; neoprene masks.
