COMMedia dell' arte

The root of Commedia Dell’Arte still exists all around us in the entertainment we see today. In a way, it can be considered one of the oldest forms of improvisational and sketch comedy (dating back to the 16th Century) but with a more physical approach. Outrageous characters in silly situations involved in screwball and slapstick antics. In this class, students will learn the basics of Commedia, exploring mask & the archetypal characters that are the base of this form, and learning improvisation & physical comedy skills.
