International Mask Artist
America Hurrah "Motel"
The Brothers M
Mr. Hunt has been working with masks since 1977. A
self-taught sculptor, Larry made the conscious decision to approach theatre
through masks after his training in the Jacques Lecoq approach to theatre with
TheatreElan in Portland, Oregon. Since 1977 Larry has been active exploring and
performing with masks worldwide. He continues traveling across the United States
performing in schools, festivals, theatres and intersperses his performances
with teaching and directing. Larry has created several original works including
“Classic Commedia” which evolved out of an improvisation class at Eastern
Connecticut State University in 2001. Also, at ECSU, Mr. Hunt directed “America Hurrah:
Motel”(Spring 2004) and, most recently, “The Brother’s M.” (Fall 2004)
based on the Roman comedy by Plautus called “The Menaechmi.” Prior to his
work at ECSU, in collaboration with Ming Ri Theatre and several United States
artists, “Playing With Klee” was performed in Hong Kong using the artwork of
Paul Klee as inspiration. He returned to Bulgaria to help direct the mask
production of “Animal Farm” in Stara Zagora and proceed then to Serbia to
create some work with performers for the INFANT
Festival in Novi Sad.
