Faces, Masks is a new interactive performance work about the performances we enact in our everyday lives.

Devised over the course of two days, this is a never-before-seen and never-to-be-seen again piece of interactive theatre. Explore, watch and play with face making or mask faking*.

Drawing from the worlds of theatre and live action roleplay (larp), this piece will be devised by a team of artists/performers/designers led by Nina Runa Essendrop. We will create a world for you, the audience, to delve into and play within. No experience of larp or larping is needed. Come to watch, listen, explore or play. All varieties of participation are welcome. Faces, Masks is a fringe event of The Smoke festival of larp.

*No actual masks will be used in the performance.
