Maria Eugenia Blanco (Buenos Aires, Argentina) started her carreer as a hospital clown. This early spark led her deeper into clown technique and from there she started to explore other territories such as Buffoonery, Melodrama, and Neutral Mask. She studied for two years at the EMAD: Metropolitan School of Dramatic Arts (Buenos Aires) specializing herself in “Acting for Open Spaces”. There she met the very well-known mask maker, Alfredo Iriarte, and started to go deep into masks techniques and mask making. After she graduated, Maria traveled to Bali to begin to learn Balinese mask making techniques. She stayed for nearly two years, carving masks in wood and entering into the Balinese beliefs and conceptions of the world. Maria returned to Argentina and began teaching workshops that mixed Balinese masks and conceptions with our occidental theater allowing the creation of her own and personal research of Theater with Masks. Currently, she is living in Berlin and furthering her studies in physical theatre at LISPA (London International School of Performing Arts).
