Introducing Trestle Half Masks

We are excited to announce our new half mask set and accompanying workshops, available to book now! Fun, enthusiastic and a great new experience

Trestle’s new half mask set and workshops, which have been developed with Sandringham School in St Albans, bring the additional element of speech to Trestle’s mask training and we have chosen eight varied half masks to become a playful set of characters.

The half masks help transform performers into vivid archetypes such the Child, the Hero, the Mother and the Devil and are a fantastic starting point for devising physical performance. Trestle has developed a workshop that prepares participants physically and vocally to improvise and devise in half mask using the archetypal characters and can be adapted to cover the following:
  • Character half mask
  • Commedia dell'arte
  • Greek gods and goddesses
  • Greek chorus work
  • Devising from archetypal characters
This really allowed some of the less confident students to blossomFor more information about our Half Mask Workshops and to download a workshop booking form, click here. For details about our new Half Mask Set, click here

Below are Greek god and goddess half masks created with sixth form students and teachers at Sandringham School for a week long Olympic Arts project in July 2012.
