Based on the theatre training methods of renowned director Libby Appel, these visually powerful masks offer excellent opportunities for developing original and compelling characters for scripted and improv pieces. The asymmetrical and abstract features give room for a wide range of psychological intentions and emotional expressions using a single mask. As they are hand-painted, colors vary from set to set.
Colorfully hand-painted, these 24 character masks are made of light, durable neoprene. Their open mouths are covered with light-weight black cloth.
Mask Characterization: An Acting Process, a book by Libby Appel, contains an entire semester’s acting activities. It is intended for both instructors and actors with and without mask and movement expertise.
