Familie Flöz Mask Workshop - led by Hajo Schueler

Mask making - like all activities in theatre and devised performance - is part of a multi-layered creative process. The mask maker is a creative artisan working at the intersection of the fine arts and the performing arts.

This workshop will offer each participant the opportunity to create a self designed full mask from paper mache. In addition to an exploration of the craft of mask making, participants will be encouraged to develop a strong sense of creative ownership. Starting from their own initial ideas and designs, participants will search for their own form. They will develop a character all the way to a form modelled in clay before creating the full mask in paper mache. The entire process will be supported throughout via critical feedback and helpful advice.

Alongside technical information about the process of mask making, participants will learn about essential factors such as asymmetry, anatomy, mask as projection, light, etc., which help the mask to play on stage.

Hajo Schueler, actor, performer and mask maker, is the founder of company FAMILIE FLÖZ, (www.floez.net) which he founded in 1995 during his final year of studies at the renowned Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, Germany.
