Hiding Behind the Mask: Jesters, Jokers, and Clowns


Rosemary George (New York, USA)

A masterclass about the hidden meaning behind characters from ancient Greek theatre, commedia dell’arte, film, television and slapstick. From Greek Tragedy and Satyr to Japanese Noh Theatre and Chinese Opera, the world of theatre has discovered a way to hide the realities and truths from themselves and the world around them. Join New York Professor Rosemary George as she takes you on a lecture tour through the joys and sorrows, comedies and tragedies of life through the lens of the theatrical mask. ‘Brilliantly and eloquently written… Thoughtful… Extraordinarily well-researched’ (Audience Review, Edinburgh Fringe). ‘Quite unique… Informative and fun’ Audience Review, Edinburgh Fringe).
