Behind the Mask

This week, we started our first unit in Grade 7 called “Behind the Mask.” We are very excited to be partnering with the Language & Literature and Language Acquisition Departments for this unit. After studying texts Antigone (L&L) or Iqbal (LA), learning mask performance skills and exploring the concept of private and public persona, students will  create their own masks and write monologues from the perspective of one of the characters from the text.  So far in the unit (on the theatre side), we have been exploring the concept of social masks through role-playing. We will be learning mask performance techniques next!
