Which characters do we take on in our daily life? What are those roles that lead us to create masks?
Participants of the ‘Everyday Dramaturgy’ workshop held at the Medellin central branch worked with these questions and similar issues.
The workshop highlighted theatrical concepts and their Greek origins, including the definition of character, drama, conflict, metaphor, personality, the mask of the actor, social masks, imitation, and the questions ‘What’s behind the mask?’ and ‘How can all this be applied to daily life?’.
Participants actively took part in several exercises: the creation of a character, analogies to everyday life; getting to know what there is behind the mask, discovering the character we all carry inside.
