PRESENTED AT OUR 2015 FESTIVAL
A mask is a vessel which may act as conduit for characters, spirits, and beings to visit. Using objects from Journey of Ten Moons, a Dell’Arte play about early explorers’ hubris combined with a Yurok legend, Xstine casts Coyote, the trickster, as the central hero and villain of this two month exhibition.
A puppet maker, theatre artist, community activist, and filmmaker, Cook studied mask and puppetry in Bali, Italy, France, and the West Coast of Canada. She is a Dell’Arte graduate and a founder of Green Fools Theatre and Calgary Animated Objects Society.
