An Introduction to Commedia dell'Arte: Zanni and Vecchi, OH MY!
n Introduction to Commedia dell'Arte:
Zanni and Vecchi, OH MY!

This workshop is designed for people who want to get an introductory glimpse into the world of the style of theatre that gave us the professional actor and introduced the woman to the stage; the Commedia dell'Arte. Participants will get to know the five most well known characters (the Zanni, The Inammorati, Il Capitano, Pantalone and Il Dottore) that we see in Commedia dell'Arte. We will work with their masks, learn how they move and how they think, and we will see how these characters can live by doing small improvisations.
Please come to the workshop with clothing that will allow for free movement. Some experience in improvisation is encouraged by not necessary. Come ready to play and to learn!
