Programme Note:
Masks of Becoming is a work in which four characters attempt to realize their identity. Through the course of the work, they struggle to identify with the masks they have been given or have acquired. They try to question those masks as facades or realities, and attempt to fling them off to reveal their naked selves. They never entirely succeed; but rather, find themselves together in an ambiguous ending - dream-like - possibly of bliss - possibly of despair - most likely of acceptance (for the moment)...
