Full Face Non Verbal Mask Theatre conceals, gives permission to play, allows expression, liberates and reveals – and is a perfect community engager. Participants will be continually amazed by their own and their peers, at their transformations. This particular mask style has the capacity to instill a sense of joy, vulnerability, physical discipline and freedom of expression in the performer.

This Program gives participants the opportunity to play, express, be physical, relate and discover in real time and space. Clint’s approach is underpinned by the assumption that everyone has something to offer and that mask work is a unique and powerful engager that has the capacity to inspire participants who might otherwise hang back.

Testimonial from Crush Festival

“Flexible, engaging and inspiring, Homunculus Theatre is an absolute joy to work with as Clint adapted to the festival’s needs! Would highly recommend festivals book in early and lock this man down for dates. A brilliant facilitator and internationally recognised performer, Clint will go the extra mile to make your experience memorable!” — Di Wills, Creative Regions 2018
