Clown and Mask (Clown en masker) – 8, 9 en 10 oktober 2018 Antwerp

In de confrontatie met een masker onthullen onze lichte en donkere krachten zich

Clown en masker
Door het dragen van een masker kunnen we onze verbinding met archetypische krachten, mythes, verhalen en beelden oproepen en verdiepen. In elke beweging met een masker zit iets dat het dagelijkse overstijgt.
Welke verbinding tot deze archetypen heeft de clown? Hoe zit het met het masker van de clown – de rode neus? Jacques Lecoq noemde dit het kleinste masker ter wereld.

In de workshop word je uitgenodigd om je te verdiepen in de kracht en werkwijze van het masker. We werken met verschillende soorten maskers (neutraal-Larven-Commedia) en verkennen ook culturele tradities (Bali etc.). Door het ontdekken van een andere wereld leert de acteur de kracht van het ogenblik te vertrouwen. Als we de confrontatie met een masker aangaan, onthullen onze lichte én donkere krachten zich.
Maskers zijn niet alleen wat ze laten zien, maar ook wat ze verbergen. Ons spel wordt gevoed door onze relatie met de maskers die we dragen en niet zozeer door onze controle erover.
Of we nu beslissen alleen maar één te worden met wat het masker in ons “zijn” zichtbaar maakt, dan wel of we in een “nobel en verfijnd conflict met hen gaan”*, de clown danst lichtvoetig van het ene naar het andere. Hij beweegt zich met al zijn beperkingen van het ene intense ogenblik, naar het volgende zorgeloze, vrije moment.

* “Going Sane” – Adam Philips

Deze workshop is voor zowel beginners als ervaren clowns.

In the confrontation with a mask our light and dark forces reveal themselves

 

Through masks, we can explore and deepen our connection to archetypal forces, myths, stories and images that profoundly influence and shape our lives.

What is the clown’s relationship to these archetypes? And what of the clown’s own mask – the red nose? Jacques Lecoq called it the smallest mask in the world and as actors we need to befriend this mask (even if clowns can do without it). This workshop invites you to look more closely at the power of the mask. We will explore different masks (neutral – larval – Commedia) as well as different cultural traditions (Bali etc.).

In confronting ourselves with masks, how do we make peace or war with the forces they reveal within us. It is our relationship to the masks we wear and not necessarily by our mastery over them that informs our work. Whether we choose to be at one with what they reveal of our nature “or in noble and ennobling conflict with it”*, the clown dances lightly from one to the other – bending to its constraints one moment and recklessly free the next.
