An Instructional DVD & accompanying Workshop Manual for Professional Acting Programs. Ideal for University Professors in Theatre Arts, Directors of Actor-Training Programs, High School Drama Teachers, Community Education, Actors, and Drama Therapy Programs. Stephanie Campbell (MFA Acting/Directing, University of Arizona) is an international Mask Methods specialist and a theatre professor at Montana State University. Ms Campbell conducts mask workshops worldwide and offers an easily understood process of Character Creation for use in your own workshops. Using character masks representing an entire range of emotions, workshop or class participants can learn to more fully develop their ability to make and "allow" intuitive physical, emotional, or mental choices appropriate for their creations. The purpose of the DVD and book is to provide teachers and facilitators with the tools and the information so that they can conduct workshops on their own. The 60 minute DVD is compiled from twelve hours of past workshops and is a step by step guide (along with the accompanying 120 page illustrated workshop leaders' manual) in conducting a successful workshop. Masks, with their multitude of transformational qualities, embody endless possibilities for theatrical Character Creation. Participants in MASK EXPLORATION WORKSHOPS intuitively create multi-faceted characters from a broad spectrum of emotional states to fully-realized and expressive entities from behind the mask. The process and workshop exercises are appropriate for inclusion in drama programs in colleges and universities, high schools, community education programs and drama therapy/counseling.
