A word fom the teacher :
The same way that an actor lets himself be approached by the mask
to take it and place it on his face…
we will let ourselves be guided by a color, a detail.
And there before our eyes, a caracter will be born,
this unknown person that we will attempt to give the breath of life.
Like the actor who lets himself be transported by the mask,
we will let ourselves be transposed by the other « me »…
… and give theatre her place.
