Masks are usually thought of as something that hide and conceal. For Faustwork Mask Theatre founder Rob Faust, the opposite is true: masks are magical objects that have the power to transform. Faust creates characters based on explorations in the Art of the Mask, perfectly matched with precise body movements to create vignettes that delight audiences of all ages with a unique mixture of theatre, physical comedy, music, dance, and poetry. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
