About

Italy has long considered the actor to be at the center of dramatic creation, beginning in the 15th century with commedia dell’arte to the present-day work of Dario Fo and Roberto Benigni. This tradition involves defining the actor as a source for expression and interpretation that is at the center of dramatic creation.

This course delves into the mask work of the commedia dell’arte in order to liberate spontaneity, physical presence, and a sense of play. In recreating the crude as well as the subtle roots of commedia, the participants work toward combining popular theatre with social commentary, stock characters with a sense of self, and the absurd with daily dramatic life.
