  •  Participants learn the physical style of Commedia dell’Arte as we believe it was “then” and how it may be used “now” as a creative tool for actors, performers, directors and teachers.
  • The goal of the workshop is for our participants to simultaneously experience the momentum, effort, historical, physical, joyful and risky style of the Commedia dell’ Arte.
  • Students develop their personal historical Commedia dell’Arte characters and style with their individual qualities. Students will easily see how this work from the 1500′s still vibrantly relates today.

Florence, Italy: June 3-21, 2013 with Roberto Andrioli and Marco Bendoni (1950 € euros: includes housing in an apartment and workshop)

  • The course is geared toward understanding the theatrical experience as a fun and useful tool for developing your own creativity and expressiveness as well as expanding your artistic experience in relation to a group.
  • This course will help to develop the exchange of physical energy and creativity amongst the students in the group.
  • Geared toward understanding the historic ” Commedia dell Arte”, which was developed in Italy, this course will focus on dances from the Renaissance period with a public performance at the end of the course.
  • In this three-week workshop, participants will enhance their physical expression and learn the techniques of storytelling, improvisation as well as scene study analyzing the major authors within the tradition of Commedia dell’Arte.
