Playing dress-up is something I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid. And, as an actor, I’ve been able to indulge that frolicsome aspect of myself in many ways.
I especially enjoy masks. When studying theater, I learned a great deal about the power of a mask, the history and mysticism of how free one can become when donning an entirely different appearance…how, in a mask, even the slightest turn or cock of the head can become an entire expression of emotion.
Whether for amusement and bawdy delight, like the Commedia dell’Arte, or for solemn ritual, like ancient Egyptian religious practices, masks free you to be who you are and who you are not.
I’ve a new mask to share with you…one that lets one of my inner Goddesses speak.
