About the workshop
The “Neutral Mask” workshop which follows the “Jeu” should enable the student to find yourself to some extent. You will put on a neutral mask and go out and visit the world. As an actor, you will gradually discover with what rhythm, what color, what substance, what material you like to move. You will discover your limits and your freedom. And it’s time for a thunderous entrance with your Greek Tragedy. Being big, walking without losing one’s marvellous aura, displaying a tremendous charm, being happy to have been singled out by the gods and to have had inscribed above one’s head a unique and iniquitous destiny; is not all this the source of extreme pleasure for the hero? And extreme pleasure for the actor?
