What kind of mask are you wearing today? Who are you pretending to be today? The cheerful one? The career person? In society, we have a constant need to perform and fulfil certain roles. Life has become almost a form of survival in every continent. Showing our true faces we find scary, much rather we hide behind pictures with great filters and GIFs hiding the fall before or after. Keep what looks beautiful and hide what's real. In MASK, Roshanak invites dancer Luis to present his demons correctly, to make ‘mistakes’, to become personal and to share uncertainties. The power of being human is the imperfections. No filters.
MASK is part of DANSLAB on tour #1, a production by SALLY Dansgezelschap Maastricht.
