Masks teach the student awareness and control of the movement and gesture. The masks demand that the student becomes aware of the essential gestures as well as aware of those not essential and thus distracting. The mask enlarges the performer to a higher level of projection and playing. An intensive one week mask making workshop with master mask makers gives the students experience designing and constructing their own mask.
For us at The Commedia School, it is important that the students create performance level material in each of these styles. Shows in each style are staged in the school studio and often are later performed in other venues in Copenhagen or at festivals in Denmark and abroad. These performances confirm for the students the attractive power of popular theatre styles.
A story telling adaptation of Gogol’s 1836 hilarious satire on the corruption in the Russian Empire – perfectly actual for today in every country.
Elif Temucin and Erkan Uyaniksoy, two recent graduates of The Commedia School from Istanbul bring their well reviewed version of this story to The Commedia School Studio. Entry is free. The show is supported by Nord Plus and The Gogol Project which is a ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) network of activities in many countries. There will be a discussion after the show lead by the Danish coordinators of The Gogol Project, Benjamin Laier and Ole Brekke.
