The word autumn comes from the ancient Etruscan root autu- and has within it connotations of the passing of the year. Autumn marks a transition in seasons where many people turn inward, both physically and mentally. Since it is the season of the primary harvest, what better way to celebrate the autumn than to harvest the bounty of riches within?

Theatre A Go-Go offers the tools for active participants to express themselves with confidence and celebrate their bounty of riches! As we transition in to this period of fruition, register for fall Physical Theatre Workshops in Commedia dell’Arte!

WHAT: THE ART OF COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE - Imagine the market places of Italy in the 1520’s where Zanni characters with half masks improvised and dominated European Theatre. The Commedia dell’Arte has been and always will be the first of the arts of the theatre. Nowadays we draw from its history to maintain its presence in modern Physical Theatre.

Explore the basic techniques actors use in creating Commedia dell’ Arte: Improvisation, Slapstick Comedy, status, and Masked Characterization. Discover the walks, gestures and voices of 6 of the stock characters. Expressing one of the characters and using a plot outline, players will improvise a Scenario with a partner.

Learn why Commedia dell’Arte is one of the most important sources of storytelling, Comedy and Physical Theatre styles. Understand why physical humour is such an important tool for communication, for either on or offstage.
