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.

He 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 synthesis of theatre, physical comedy, music, dance, and poetry.

“The Mask Messenger,” aka “Le Masque est le Message,” is physical theatre and comedy in the guise of a lecture/demonstration about masks. The show brims with wisdom and insight, even though at times audiences are laughing too.
