Mask and Man
By Maria Hansson
Mask and Man is both a sound experience and a visual experience.
You will meet three characters solid in mask. The masks discover themselves, each one has their own song to sing. They lack vocabulary. Yet, something is being said, very slowly they form a word, a name, a sentence…
Mask and Man is about identity, how it's created and invisible oppression. How do you stand up for yourself when you lack vocabulary? And a character with the privilege to use words- does it have anything interesting to say?
Performed in a concept of "natural opera" with the aim to go beyond genres to come to the core of what the expression needs.
Performed with music from Bruno Faria (brunofaria.net)
