1 Masks in Macbeth

2 Key Design Words:  Haunted.  Folktale.  Appalachia.  Madness.  Redemption.

3 Overall Mask Tone: Repetitive, Imaginative, Ethereal.

4 Overall Mask Look: Visceral, Contained, Unsettling.

5 The remnants of our choices, of our work, form the masks we wear.

6 Connected to the land. The conflict between the natural world and human decision.

7 Artisan. Earthen. Homemade.

8 Ghostly Faces and Haunted Spaces: Butoh face and mask work as a way to think about how the masks live in our production.

9 White Face Makeup Every character will wear very soft, almost sheer and effervescent, white face makeup to capture their haunted-like quality; a very clean, simple look. Not too dissimilar from Johnny Depp’s “Dark Shadows” character, but without darkened eyes.

10 The Witches Neutral, clean, and simple ½ masks. Made of plaster. The texture will speak to the natural, earthen quality to the world the witches live in.

11 The Warriors Finger face paint applied during performance: marking the ritual of getting ready for war.

12 The Murderers Black infinity scarves worn as shown below, which then transition into hoods for the murder. A softness and fluidity in texture which then takes on a harsher life-form as they become masks worn during murder.
