The UK’s leading mask Company, Vamos Theatre, are giving teachers free access to a full-length film of their newest production – DEAD GOOD.
About Vamos Theatre
Since 2006, Vamos Theatre has taken its funny and fearless brand of wordless theatre across the length and breadth of the UK and beyond. Their trademark style combines full mask with strong visual design and an original soundtrack.
The company tours its full-scale mask theatre productions throughout the UK annually. They share their work and skills with communities and has been working with schools and colleges since their formation.
Their workshops, videos and teaching resources cover mask performing, mask making, physical theatre and devising, and encourage teamwork and confidence, focus, participation and creativity.
About DEAD GOOD
Let’s start…at the end.
Bob and Bernard have only two things in common: they’re both dying…and they’re not going down without a fight. So, with a bottle of Bollinger and the keys to Bernard’s Bentley in hand, they decide to hit the road, and take on one final, death-defying adventure.
But when time really does start to run out, can Bob and Bernard accept the inevitable? Can their growing friendship make the difference? And by seeing the end in sight, can they truly value living?
Funny and poignant in equal measure, Dead Good is our new production for 2020, touring the UK and Europe. It’s a witty, wordless theatre show about the ultimate shared experience.
DEAD GOOD is suitable for 12 years+
DEAD GOOD has been touring since January across the UK. The company, however, had to make the difficult decision to cut the run short due to Covid-19.

Free Vamos Theatre DEAD GOOD Teaching Resources and Educational Videos
To accompany the production and to help teachers through this challenging period, the company has produced new videos and resources. These free educational resources are for teachers, students, mask actors and anyone else interested in mask theatre.
Short films show you how mask acting works and exercises you can try yourself at home. To go alongside the videos (and to challenge your students!), Vamos Theatre has produced a weekly interactive self-marking quiz.
The accompanying DEAD GOOD education pack explores the themes and characters of the piece. The pack also gives an insight into the creation and inspiration of the production, exploring practitioners such as Stanislavski, Brecht and Jacques Lecoq.
