Mask and Commedia Centrum
The Institution has started in April 1985 and celebrated its 10th. anniversary with an International Mask Festival. The Festival took place in Kulturhuset and at Dramatiska Institutet in Stockholm.
Mask and Commedia Centrum is an ideal Institution which goals are:
- to spread knowledge about Masks, Puppetts and Commedia and their use in different cultures and époques.
- to research and experiment in masks and puppetts making, in their use as an artistic form of expression and Commedia as a theatre form.
- to function as a forum to develop and create new forms of working with masks, puppetts and Commedia, by driving the professional theatre group "Commediagillet" and being a place of reunion for independent theatre groups, both amateurs and professional.
All this by organising courses, workshops, seminaries, lectures, performances and expositions about masks and Commedia and by publications in this subjects.
