Commedia dell ‘Arte
Covering the essentials for learning the art of Commedia dell ‘Arte, this workshop is designed for students and performers (it can also be transformed into a Master Class designed to empower teachers of Commedia). The workshop leads performers through the various characters and skills required for Commedia dell ‘Arte including ‘The Zannis’ (low status), ‘The Impostors’ (high status), ‘Comic Duos’ or ‘Trios’ (high & low status) and ‘The Maskless Characters’ (the lovers, Pedrolino, the Cavalier). Participants will participate in improvisational workshops including ‘The Canovachi’ (the method of creating a short scenario) and ‘The Lazzi’ (comic stage business or short clowning routine) as well as mask handling, etiquette and movement training. This workshop is suited to all skill levels although we encourage those of similar skill levels be grouped together to enable the training process to be more beneficial.
