Best of BE FESTIVAL is a trio of half hour-long festival favourites, which tours the UK. The Festival encourages exchange between international and local artists and the following workshops enable Bristol theatre makers to work with two of this year’s companies. In Spanish Company Kulunka Teatro’s show André and Dorine, three actors create more than ten characters without uttering a word, relying only on gesture and mask work. In this workshop, participants will have a chance to explore the theatre of mime and the art of mask. The goal is to approach the most essential aspects of mask language and overcome the difficulties of telling a story with no words.
