Zarco Guerrero, mask maker and dramatist, to present one-man show at Artspace Fri, Sept 21, 7 pm

"This week's out-of-state guest artist, Zarco Guerrero, from Mesa, Arizona, will be performing a one man masked drama performance on Friday at 7pm at Artspace," says Bonne' Summers.

Guerrero will also teach a mask making workshop on Saturday from 11:30 to 1:30 ($35) which includes creating your own mask and taking it home.

At we see, "Renowned sculptor/mask maker Zarco Guerrero reveals the awesome power of the mask to transform in this unique one man performance. With a master's touch, the artist personifies eccentric prototypes forcing us to examine our most innate feelings and thoughts on such themes as self-esteem, bigotry, aging, abuse and denial.

Zarco, who has traveled extensively investigating the use of the mask in theater, ritual and ceremony, brings years of first hand experience to life in this chilling yet comical presentation. Through the artist's eyes we see ourselves and society as never before - exposed by his masks, movement and monologue."

This one man performance lasts approximately 45 minutes and includes a question-and-answer period.
