Theatre, masks and carnivals


 

Masks are among the elements that give rise to the creation of characters and games involving interpretation. They are, therefore, an integral part of the theatre. We find them in Tàpies’ universe because they are fundamental to Japanese Noh theatre, Dadaism and the actions of artists linked to the magazine Dau al Set. Coinciding with Carnival, we are organizing a family workshop in which we will be creating masks using recycled material, and where we will be inspired by Tàpies to give new life to everyday waste material while creating new characters.
