Robert Faust & Faustwork Mask Theater

The Mask Messenger

The Mask Messenger offers insight into the artistic, psychological, and historical aspects of masks, connecting to the themes of Transformation and The Human Family. Robert  Faust demonstrates how a character is created when a mask is worn.  Body posture and movement deepen the quality of each emotion.  Lessons include two-sided mask-making, body language and mask metaphors.
