About

The Commedia Program is an intensive acting workshop that engages the physical life of each actor in the pursuit of expanding range of expression. The class will explore the influence of Commedia in Shakespeare, Molière and television. 

Through practicing the art of Commedia dell’Arte, learn why Italy has long considered the actor to be at the center of dramatic creation. You will become a part of this Italian tradition stretching from the Middle Ages to the present-day work of Dario Fo and Roberto Benigni. Students will:


  • Experience mask work to heighten spontaneity, physical presence, and a sense of play.

  • Develop the ability to explore play in Shakespeare, on-camera work and modern texts.

  • Delve into popular theater and biting satire through the understanding stock characters from around the globe.
