Commedia dell’Arte is a form of theatre characterized by masked “types”. Commedia dell’Arte (“Comedy of Art” or “Comedy of the profession”), means unwritten or improvised drama, and implies rather to the manner of performance than to the subject matter of the play. It was a popular form of entertainment in Italy during the Renaissance although it began in the 14th Century and continued until the 18th Century. Commedia gained popularity in other European countries, especially France. The actors performed in public in town squares and no scripts were used; only scenarios were written allowing the actors to improvise the dialogue to the delight of the audience. Commedia dell’Arte is still alive around the world. Join us for one of our incredible Commedia dell’Arte workshops.
