This guest post is from actor Devereau Chumrau.
Devereau may be a native of Los Angeles, but it is also the time she spent in Ghana, in Europe and the UK, and largely as a student of the Asolo Conservatory in Florida, that has shaped her vision as an actor and as an artist. She has, all along the way, worked to develop her interest and experience in acting for the stage and for the screen.
Catch her show LOVECRAFT: Nightmare Suite closing March 2 at the Visceral Company in Hollywood.
I've seen some really interesting masks, but these are so innovative and resourceful, from African artist Romulad Hazoumé who uses salvaged materials for masks that resemble those used in traditional African culture and ceremonies.
Hazoumé' said, “I send back to the West that which belongs to them, that is to say, the refuse of consumer society that invades us everyday.”
