CAFE GOMA

LIFE. LOVE. COFFEE.

Enter the mysterious world of oversized full-masks, larger than life and elegantly comic. Wild comedy smashes into tender moments as these three serve coffee, dance the tango, butcher a chicken, and accidentally fall in love. And there's a mouse...

Once found all over the world but now rarely performed, full masks use only bodies to tell the story - no voices or faces are used. Each amazing mask, meticulously hand-crafted by Seth Bloom, requires more than 80 hours to sculpt, mold, and paint. 

Set in a poor cafe, the feisty neighborhood characters are rooted in the rough carvings of Juan de Dios Mena, an Argentine sculptor and social activist of the 1930's and 40's. Devised in collaboration with Greg Webster of Split Knuckle Theatre and professor of movement at University of Connecticut.
