“The art of the mask is an art of movement in space and time, 

of movement as the sign of the spirit in anything, in everything, 

even in that which appears static.” ~Antonio Fava



Angela Horchem has been making and performing in masks for the past 7 years. She currently serves as Artistic Director for ETCETERA, the late-night program at Live Theatre Workshop. This collaboration between ETCETERA and Horchem’s company, Theatre 3, yielded MixTape, an evening of physical theatre; Improviso! a mask show in the style of contemporary Commedia Dell’Arte; and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, a ritual designed to share stories, music, and culture from different regions around the world while collaborating with community guests. She then toured MixTape across the U.S. and Canada through 2013. Previously, Theatre 3 devised Soy Formaggio as Tucson’s celebration of World Commedia Dell’Arte Day. Theatre 3 also performed with WONDERHEADS in the ETCETERA-sponsored production of the same name, an evening of full-face mask. Horchem serves the Tucson community by offering workshops in devised theatre, clown, mask, and other forms at local schools and theatres. In 2012, Horchem received a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to attend the organization’s Institute on Roman Comedy in Performance, giving her the chance to perform with other artists, scholars, and leading experts in the field of Comedic Mask Performance. Horchem graduated from Dell’Arte International where she studied physical theatre and mask making. She studied shadow puppetry and traditional Topeng dance for six weeks in Bali, Indonesia. She earned her M.A. in theatre from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and worked as a guest artist with performance 

companies--from Shakespeare to Circus--across the country.
