The creation of this project was inspired by two powerful time periods – the Chinese Year of the Dragon and the annual late fall season celebrated world-wide by traditions in various countries. Gateway’s artists utilize the qualities and images of these periods to create a series of community art events and activities that focus on the transformational power of masks and the year 2012 coupled with the late fall season to align art and landscape with community gathering and celebration.
Gateway Performance Productions reaches diverse cultural groups and participates in all functions of Mask and Mime Theatre in order to further the cultural quality of Mask and Mime Theatre and, thereby, ensure its place as an integral part of the world of art. The company achieves its mission through touring and outreach performances, workshops, classes, residencies, and exhibits to community and educational venues and by maintaining The MASK Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
