Masks Made for Falling Awake

By admin | September 21, 2017

Fringe hit, Falling Awake, returns to Vancouver October 13 to 15 at Studio 1398 on Granville Island. Starring Nayana Fielkov and Matthew “Poki” McCorkle (aka RAGMOP Theatre), the show take you into the dreams a woman is having about her dead husband. But, as Mooney on Theatre reports, “It sounds depressing, but the physical comedy and virtuoso performances by both actors completely immersed me in the dream-state world of the play.”

One scene in the play includes mask work, something Nayana specializes in. “I have done a lot of mask work in my life. Neutral through half mask, baby clown, deep clown,” she explains. “I’ve created dozens of masks, and made many cabaret bits with them.”

Here’s a few photos of the masks in Falling Awake, from collecting the clay, to their use on stage.
