Based in Copenhagen and Berlin the Masquerade Studio offers masks, workshops, interactive lectures, theory and research concerning physical theatre and mask performance. We started 1998 after a leather mask workshop with Donato Sartori at the Centro Maschere e stutture gestuali in Italy and now look back on more than 25 years of mask making, performing and developing this whole enterprise into a rakish, down-to-earth tool kit to stage change.
