Based in Copenhagen and Berlin the Masquerade Studio offers masks, workshops, interactive lectures, theory and research concerning physical theatre and mask performance. We started 1997 after a leather mask workshop with Donato Sartori at the Centro Maschere e stutture gestuali in Italy and now look back on 25 years of mask making, performing and developing this whole enterprise into a rakish, down to earth tool kit to stage change.
