Before TV Sitcoms, before Chekov and even before Shakespeare there was Commedia dell’Arte. Masked, comic actors; sparkling divas; quirky servants and eccentric masters, bouncing and contorting their way through well-known stories.
Matriark Theatre is opening up the training room in a series of masterclasses designed to introduce and inspire you to a love of this remarkable form.
Perfect for actors, writers, artists and enthusiasts; Commedia dell’Arte blends improvisation, physical theatre and social critique. It provides tools for quickly and effectively telling stories for the stage. Connect with Matriark and learn the basics of the Commedia over six-weeks. Two expert tutors will facilitate a hands-on introduction to the characters, masks and the plot devices of the form.
