- Keep actions simple
- Keep contact with the audience, but remember that the mask needs to inhabit a world which is entire within itself for stories to remain believable- waving, giving thumbs up to the audience, etc. can jeopardise this.
- Transfer expression and energy from the face to the body (normally we look at the eyes and interpret the face, in mask we look at the face and interpret the body)
- Be aware of and observe body language
- Stay focused
- Remember that the angle of the mask as you present it will have an effect on how its expression is read.
