Description
An introductory-level class covering basic history of Commedia dell' Arte, the 16th century Italian improvisational comic theater, and its stock characters with opportunities to play short scenes to try them out. We will play some theater improv games, so all students will participate! We'll also cover how to make commedia happen in the modern SCA. Class taught by the i Firenzi Capocomico, Sophia the Orange, and i Firenzi's Technical Director, Manus MacDhai.
