Are you a theater nerd? Do you love to laugh? Then Commedia dell’Arte is for you!
Commedia dell’Arte is an Italian Renaissance form of street theater, with set characters and storylines but no script. All of the lines are improvised, and it’s hilarious fun!
This Saturday, members of the acclaimed Commedia troupe, i Genesii, will teach an entire track of Commedia dell’Arte classes at Æthelmearc Æcademy in the College of Silva Vulcani. There will be seven hours of education in foolery to be had!
Classes will cover Commedia and improv basics, how to write scenarios, stage combat techniques, and hands-on improv games, with the day culminating in a mini-Iron Commedia session where participants will learn and perform a short improv skit in only two hours!
You do not need to attend the entire track – choosing just those classes that interest you is fine – but, if you do go through the entire track, you will have a better understanding of all of the elements of Commedia dell’Arte, and maybe even be ready to form your own troupe back home!
Note: performance material will be kept PG for the Æcademy, so parents need have no fear!
Celebrating Italian Culture – Late Sixteenth century Rapier, Food, Clothing, Music, Dance, Art, and all the culture that brought Commedia dell’ Arte to life!
Do you love to laugh? Do you wish you could go to an event when laughing is what it is all about? Do I have a deal for you.
Æthelmearc’s own Shire of Ballachlagan will be hosting the Known World Commedia Symposium. Not only will there be commedia troupes from all over the known world, but the weekend will be a celebration of Renaissance Italian Culture, with classes on Italian dance, fencing, mask making, and more! There will be an authentic period Italian feast, and of course PERFORMANCES! So many performances you might just want to have an extra chair just for all the sitting and laughing you will do!
