Layering Reality: the Right to Mask Conference


Darren will be masking himself and doing a talk in the guise of someone who knows something about masks at Layering Reality: the Right to Mask in Prague on Hallowe'en. Hopefully his mask won't slip, as it's not very strongly secured. Masks will be explored in a wider sense to include a variety of covering and uncovering of the body, space (and, in our case, social relations) in performance. The aim of the symposium is to map the variety of practices of masking that exist in contemporary performance as well as their use within performance.
