Taking a student through the process of how to put on a mask and finding the Spirit of the Mask. Italian Commedia actors believe that each of the masks has a spirit and that an actor must ‘let go’ and allow themselves to see the world through the mask’s eyes (literally and figuratively). You might mention the ancient tradition of mask possession that still takes place in Voodoo rituals – to impress upon students the power of masks, and this idea of being ‘possessed by the mask.’ Convey this information with seriousness and gravitas; you want the students to feel they are about to experience something profound, exciting, and a little frightening — because, they are.
