A physical celebration of rhythm, attitude and improvisational madness, Commedia dell’Arte pushes passions to the extreme. The characters, defined by the mask, require a level of play from the performer where the body is fully engaged, alive and always playful. True to Commedia, a simple storyline is the structure that allows the actors to create and play all’improvviso – a style that is constantly nourished by improvisation and virtuoso developments of comic themes (lazzi).

Join the second-year students of the Dell’Arte International MFA program as they translate the written word into dynamic worlds rich with poetic imagery, music and storytelling. Although working independently, the groups have found tales that explore personal transformation, a search for peace and survival despite life’s adversaries.
Join these dynamic ensembles as they explore artwork, poetry, character study and improvisation to bring these lively and moving stories of humanity and redemption to life.
For mature audiences only.
Dell’Arte is located at 131 H Street in Blue Lake California. Just five minutes from Arcata, east on Highway 299. Call 707-668-5663 ext. 5 for more information or to reserve tickets.
The DELL’ARTE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL THEATRE is the North American center for the training and performance of the actor-creator. This year we celebrate 32 years in Blue Lake, where students from around the world study amidst the majestic redwoods and rugged beauty of California’s North Coast. We are the only institution in the U.S. offering a full-time professional actor training program in physical theatre, through a one-year certificate program, and an accredited three-year MFA in Ensemble-Based Physical Theatre. We also offer summer workshops, open training sessions, and Study Abroad programs in Bali and Denmark.
Dell’Arte international is an extraordinary community of artists. The combination of our training programs, research, the original touring productions of the Dell’Arte Company, our summer festival, our youth education programs in public schools, and our work in economic/community development makes us a destination unlike any other on the American theatre map.
