Shadow Mask and Headdress Workshop w/ Christine Marie
Time & Location
About The Event
In this workshop we will create (or begin to create) our own shadow masks and headdresses. We will create a functional, performative mask either one sided or two sided. We'll learn ways of making it last for tours, and methods for live mask performance.

She seamlessly integrates performers, objects and special effects to elicit connections with concepts, phenomenology and history in emotional and visually stimulating experiences.
Christine Marie strives to break new ground within her form while being intrinsically tied to ancient art forms and the metaphysical exploration of light. She is pioneering the use of large-scale 3D shadows by reinventing the stereoscope and casting 30’ shadows into cubic space.
