The Masks We Wear

“The students really enjoyed both workshop and performance and found it interesting and inspiring” Antonio Boriello, Phoenix Youth Academy Coordinator

The masks we wear is a project to explore our identity on and off stage.

Sometimes the performance we put on in life can be more restrictive than our stage performance: from how technology allows us to create our self-image, to the sides of our persona we choose to show or to leave out.

During phase one of this project, Ella Mesma Company will work with a group of young dancers, funded by a Leeds inspired Grant to talk makeup, filters and masks and explore the shadows that we hide from ourselves.
