About the performance

The lives of three characters intertwine in this raw, 1-man mask performance. “Masked” brings the 500-year-old art form commedia dell’arte to life, infusing it with a contemporary, physical, and genuine approach to theatrical work. First performed as part of the Mama Escena Fest in Ecuador and later developed through the UNC Process Series, “Masked” is an emotionally honest and riveting journey into the inherent comedy and tragedy of our human existence.
