Drop the Mask

Friday 4th May 2018

About the artistic direction…
I’ve always wanted to be the owner of place where people can feel safe to be themselves and can spend good times with friends. I thought about having a bar since I was twelve. Thanks to theatre, I can make things happen during one night, or more, like a dream. So I decided to create my own bar on stage, and bring it wherever I want in the world. In this show, I don’t come with a team. I create the cast on the spot because … this is the goal! Open a place for improvisers and actors where they can feel free to do what they want.

About masks…
Full mask reacts. That’s it. They don’t speak about anything else other than what is happening right now. They sit down on a chair, this is the story. They look at the bartender, this is the story. They try to get off the stage, this is the story. You can’t cheat with masks, you have to be there, present, connected with the reality to create the magic.
