A few words from Steve Jarand

A master becomes a master through perseverance and humility.
A pupil respects the tradition and takes gradual steps towards improvement.
Growth and success may be seen as gifts bestowed upon us by those who
have come before, if the path has been laid out with generosity and

I see our Trance Masks mask work from this approach; in this light.
Not only has Keith developed a technique that serves to enliven
theatre like few others can, but he himself acknowledges the sources
and honors the cultures and individuals who have kept the power and
meaning of masks alive.

It is my intention to preserve and grow this mask tradition with
honesty and dedication. Like the commitment needed to raise a child.

I sincerely hope this websites connects you to others with similar
energy and spirit.
