Description
Commedia dell' Arte is a method of producing a play that was very popular in 16th Century Italian society at all levels. This art form was characterized by masked "types" which began in Italy in the 16th century and was responsible for the advent of the actresses and improvised performances based on sketches or scenarios. It was improvised instead of scripted, full of stereotypical characters, and high energy humor! Come learn the basics about it and how you can start commedia in your own home town.
