Actors could transform into a god, an animal, or a beast with the use of a mask during their performance.

Masks helped audiences expand their imagination while watching a play or participating in a ceremony. Effect of Greek Theatre Masks No ancient Greek theatre masks survive today. They were made from perishable material and could not stand the test of time. Current Manifestation Masks soon evolved into having more practical uses, such as when men took on female roles and when a man had to take on more than one role in any given play. Masks were also used to make an actor's emotions seem more dramatic because audiences often stood very far from the stage during performances. Derivatives of Greek theatre masks are still used in theater today. They are used in modernized Greek productions mainly, but other masks are used in other productions. Many masks today are considered decorative and ornamental. They also have had a major influence over a few twentieth century artists: Picasso, Matisse, Derain. Petrides, Antonis.
