« Creating theatre masks »
This workshops aims at sharing experience gained on many productions and is also devised as a creative laboratory. The idea is to dive into the process of creating a mask whatever the style, the play, the sort of performance, etc. This covers many stages from the actor’s face cast, till when the mask is explored on stage.
7 – 12 dec 2020 (6 days)
« Focus on: Creating realistic looks »
This workshop aims at sharing experience on how to avoid the complexity and costs of special effects techniques. The technique used here is thermoplastic (rigid) not silicone. Participants should already have basic painting skills (acrylic colors).
the workshops are produced by IFO asbl, an organization started by Natacha Belova and Javier Chavez.

After training at the Jacques Lecoq theatre school in Paris and briefly with Donato Sartori in Padua Italy, Loïc soon started a research in mask making with a young generation of directors: Christophe Laparra, Sylvain Creuzevault, Karl Eberhard, Sandrine Anglade, Lionel Gonzalez, Leonor Canales, Juliette Prillard etc. These collaborations as well as the discovery of the work of Werner Strub encouraged him to pursue a research in territories quite distant from the commedia dell’arte, combining the use of composite and natural materials. In 2009 the Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation awarded him the “For the Intelligence of the Hand / Exceptional Talents” prize.
