The Magic of Masks & Puppets

Masks, puppets and performing objects are one of the most ancient and popular forms of theatre. They are vibrant, living, breathing and subversive; playing a major role in modern theatre, film, television and the media.

A collection of masks derived from theatre and performance traditions from around the world.  This exhibition includes a special display of tools used in Noh, Commedia and Topeng theatre, and the short documentary "Facing The Mask".

Behind The Mask

Booking for all touring exhibitions includes design, delivery, installation, education planning, programme consultation, talk/demonstrations & bookstall service.
