Masks of Manipulation Applied Theatre Workshop
The Ladies Parlour, Main Floor, 157 Carlton Street (Corner of Sherbourne and Carlton), Toronto ON M5A 2K3
The “Masks of Manipulation”, an invaluable character development and conflict-resolution process designed by Simon Malbogat, gives face to each of the seven different emotional, mental, and spiritual manipulative forces we encounter both onstage and in daily life.
This workshop draws on Commedia dell’Arte-inspired masks to help participants acquire a deeper awareness of manipulation and oppression: how and why it happens, what it looks and feels like, and how to de-escalate it.
Participants will also take away from this two-day workshop a Mask of their own creation, which they will learn to use as a physical touchstone in processes ranging from character development to community mediation. This workshop, co-facilitated by Simon Malbogat and Peter Jarvis, is suitable for artists, educators, and community activators alike.
Dates: March 16th and March 23rd, 9:30AM-5:30PM both days
