Tell Your Story: Self Creation through Vocal Masque Technique

Explore vocal masque technique with theatre artists Sheldon Elter and Kristi Hansen at this pay-what-you-will workshop!


Want to write a play but you’re not “a writer”? Creating theatre isn’t a one size fits all model. There are many ways to create work and to explore the content and characters of your play without sitting down and writing it all out beforehand. This workshop focuses on the performance and creation style of vocal masque in which each actor plays multiple characters in rapid succession as a one-person performance. Instead of narrating, the actor becomes each character and performs dialogue by themselves. In this workshop we will be specifically exploring characters’ bodies and voices as well as improvising dialogue to help work towards a solo vocal masque scene.
