Trance Mask Intensive Workshop with Jun Imai

After the success of last year's introductory mask workshop, we're happy to present an in-depth exploration of this fascinating topic.

We will review the basics, giving us a chance to familiarize ourselves with the trance experience and get to know the characters waiting for us in Jun's expanded mask collection, and then move on from there to more complex work.

This promises to be a very exciting workshop, an invaluable experience for improvisors, actors and creative people in general. What's more, thanks to the generosity of both Imai-san and Our Space, we're able to offer this workshop for ONLY ¥5,000, a very reasonable rate.

Jun Imai is the leading authority on improv theatre in Japan, having authored the definitive series of books on the subject in Japanese ("It Isn't Easy Being Free" and "Japanese Who've Begun to Improvise - An Impro Manual"). He has studied method acting in LA with the East/West Players, improv with Keith Johnstone at The Loose Moose Theatre in Calgary, interpreted for Keith's workshops in Japan, and creates his own masks after having studied with a Noh master craftsman. He leads theatre and mask workshops here in Tokyo and is the director of TCS-J.

The workshop will run from 9:30am until 5.30pm, with an hour for lunch and breaks as needed.

Please feel free to pass this invitation along to anyone who you think may be interested.

We hope very sincerely that you can make it.

    FANTASTIC! I found that working with the masks was a profound way to explore inner spaces, archetypes, and social interactions. I was surprised at the energy and emotion inside of me that was released by the mask work. I learned a lot about myself and also about the friends who attended. Practically a perfect experience - I am still thinking about it now, the next day! -E
