COMPAS teaching artist Malia Burkhart will lead an seven-week workshop in performance and mask-making. Old-adult participants will learn about creating characters through physical expression and non-verbal gestures and create their own original mask.  We will play with theater games and improvisation exercises to create a story with our characters, combining storytelling with mask-movement and music.  We'll learn about techniques for finalizing our plan through storyboards, and rehearsing our stories.  For the final session, participants will have an opportunity to share their original performance with the community. This is a FREE event. No registration required. 

7 session dates: 

October 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd from 1 - 3pm
