Behind The Mask: Touring Exhibition For Hire

A high quality, very visual and intriguing collection of masks derived from the great theatre and performance traditions around the world: sure to stun and inspire your visitors. It is accompanied by informative text panel stands, wall mounted exhibits and special displays of tools used in Noh, Commedia and Topeng  theatre plus some dedicated film footage. We recommend creating an interactive mask-making area for hands-on workshops.

This exhibition was launched in the summer of 2005 at Banbury Museum in Oxford and achieved more than 50,000 visitors. It has also been shown at Cork Public Museum, The Haven Gallery in Boston, The Ark:A Cultural Centre for Children in Dublin, Tunbridge Wells Museum, Hackney Museum, Summerlee Industrial Museum and Cannon Hall Museum in Barnsley. During 8 Jan- 29March 2015 it will be at the Museum of St Albans in Hertfordshire.
