Resonance of Masks


In ancient Greek theatre, masks were used not only to make it easier for the actors to play more than one part and go beyond their real identity, but also they helped to amplify the voice and amplify the character being played – in other words, they served to create resonance.  Just so with the Jungian idea of persona – the mask we put on to present ourselves in a suitable way, to help us be in tune, resonate, with society.   We can have multiple persona to suit each different situation.  The Champernowne Summer Course provides the opportunity to experiment, to ‘play’ with different parts of ourselves and see where it takes us. With this knowledge we have more resources to tap into, not only for enriching ourselves, but also to use for the masks of persona.
