Commedia dell'Arte Workshop

Commedia Workshop in Florence, Italy

The students have been working on creating some classic commedia characters (Il Capitano, Pantalone, Ricciolina, and Arlequino) with the instructors, Roberto Andrioli and Marco Bendoni. They are using improvisation and physical adaptations of characters to enhance classic and timeless scenarios. During the second week, they learned some traditional and period dances, the first being the dance of the Tarantella. The energy is up, the learning is visible and the inspiration is apparent!
