Description La Máscara is about the inner need to hide behind the masque. Masque is a mechanism to be and to feel safe; it is a way to protect oneself from the world around us. It is also an important tool for cheating and selfbetrayal, and many people need it also in their private lives. Work includes also a textual level (Leino, Camus, Vysotski). It rises a question of taking of the masque: do we have that possibility, and what happens afterwards? It gives no simple answers, but touches deeply the question of being.
