Another session of Commedia U (NY) June 14-26
Commedia dell’Arte Summer Intensive Seminar 2 Week Workshop
June 14th – June 26, 2009
at pierStudios in New York NY
RCCU is in its eight year of teaching Classical Commedia dell’Arte as close to its original form as we believe it was performed in the 1500’s and 1600’s. Master mask maker and Commedia dell’Arte expert Stanley Allan Sherman will lead this Commedia dell’Arte intensive.
These are the areas this workshop will concentrate on
â€¦Commedia dell’Arte characters Pantalone, Arlecchino, Brighella, Dottore, Capitano, Lovers and Women –their movement, gesture and history of the characters, improvisation, lazzi, mask work, mask making, physical skills, prop manipulation, rhythm, scatology, scenario work and more; all integrated.
Much of the scenario and improvisation work will be taken from their new translation of three of Flaminio Scala scenarios believed to be from the legendary Gelosi Company 1572 to 1604.
