“It’s uninhibited. It’s free. It’s playful. It’s in the body. It’s expressive. It’s dynamic. It’s risky. And it’s provocative.”

Aole Miller, the mask instructor for Chautauqua Theater Company, loves the work he does with his students. As he speaks, his students, the actors, don vibrant colored spandex, knee pads and clown noses and start to stretch. Their loud exhalations fill the room as they perform headstands and splits.

As they loosen into their clown selves, they become deeper versions of themselves.

Masks, clown noses and a silly show are scheduled to take place at 10:30 p.m. Saturday at the Chautauqua Theater Company’s Late Night Mask Show. The show will take place outside rehearsal shacks 64 and 65.

Although it falls during Week Two programming dates, the show will take on the theme from Week Three, which is “American Intelligence: Technology, Espionage and Alliances,” said Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch.
