  FOUR DAY WORKSHOP, 10-4 PM, MAY 21-24

An intensive and fun immersion into the techniques of Topeng masked drama, a unique and ancient theatre form which incorporates storytelling, mask work, dance and physical characterisation. The course will be led by Ida Bagus Alit, a lifelong performer of Topeng, who has skills, insights and innate knowledge of this extraordinary form of performance that few in the world possess.

The course is suitable for actors, dancers, storytellers, circus performers and students of performance with an interest in mask work and cross-cultural art forms. Participants will be immersed in a practical hands-on exploration of Topeng as well as contextual learning sessions with British based practitioners Margaret Coldiron and Tiffany Strawson. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of Topeng’s role in traditional and contemporary Balinese culture as well as its influence on current performance practice.

There will be a special Topeng performance event with Ida Bagus Alit on the evening of Saturday 24th May.

Topeng Performance: Saturday 24th May, 7.30pm, Venue 1 (on stage event) £3 (free for workshop participants)
