Unmasked Exhibition Opening
Start Date and Time:
Thursday, April 4, 2019, 5:00PM
End Date and Time:
Thursday, April 4, 2019, 7:00PM
Join us for the exhibition opening of Unmasked. The exhibit highlights the 16th-century craft of mask-making rarely seen today. It pays tribute to the last contribution that Paolo Consiglio, an Italian master mask maker, made to the CDTPS through the 2002 production of The Bacchae (directed by Daniel Brooks, with the score by Jean-Jacques Lemaitre). Paola Consiglio also taught at the Centre for a brief time.
Paolo has had a profound impact on the theatre as a mentor and artist. His legacy and time at the Centre lives on through our collection and the memories of those who had the privilege to know him.
The exhibit incorporates reflections from successful professionals, who were once students of the University College Drama Program, including those of actress and instructor, Krista Sutton.
Unmasked initiates a larger archival project at the CDTPS concerning our own past.
There will be a cash bar and light refreshments served.
Attendance is FREE
