Stage psychosis >> Wednesday, October 28th, 22:45h, Round Hall“The solo Stage Psychosis is meant to be a brief analysis of the concept of mask, regarded not only from a psychosocial point of view, as ‘persona‘, but also from a theatrical one, starting from the hypothesis that one uses the ‘mask‘ to protect his/her intimacy, and also as an instrument of regulation and adaptation. By using this investigation in a stage context, the piece aims to discover theatrical attitudes and mechanisms accessed through the performer’s own mask.“
