Our Performing Arts Club is back and learning all about the use of masks in theatre. Drama coach Ali helped everyone explore how wearing different masks made them feel, move and act.
They also experimented with music, seeing how this affected their movement - blank masks are versatile as you have to show emotion and feeling through your body and movement.
The group then worked on mirroring each other’s actions and reacting to their actions.
The session finished with everyone acting out an emotion using bodies, stance and movement and the rest of the group had to guess the emotion.
Next week, they’ll be making their own masks to continue this drama work.
