Mask Theatre comes to Caernarfon
Vamos Theatre, the Worcestershire-based full mask theatre company, tours nationally and internationally, taking its unique style of innovative and engaging theatre to small and large communities alike: theatre that brims with visual inventiveness, original music, puppetry, dexterity, and hilarity. Vamos Theatre is dedicated to devised work, physical and fantastical adaptations of human stories, often rooted in real life histories and events. Vamos is passionate about theatre and its role in people’s lives, in performance and participation. Local to international, Vamos Theatre engages and inspires intergenerational audiences and participants with its playful and fearless full mask theatre.
Galeri, Caernarvon will celebrate this year’s Gwyl Gwanwyn Festival with a Vamos Theatre workshop. A performance of Finding Joy as part of the TONIC session will follow the workshop.
Artists from Vamos theatre will lead a mask workshop in the theatre in Galeri. Here’s an opportunity for young teenagers to bring a grandparent, a neighbour or friend (over 60 years old) to enjoy and participate in the workshop woth them. The workshop will explore some of the themes in the production Finding Joy in a playful and interactive way, giving the participants an opportunity to develop skills and confidence through communicating without language and using masks
