INTRODUCTION:

 

Commedia dell'Arte began in Italy in the 16th century and with it professional theater. Actors use masks, physical types, and specific gestures to portray a variety of characters. It begins with a canovaccio, a series of specific events, the structure from which actors improvise the text using their character, a lazzo (comic idea or gag), songs, acrobatics, etc. Some well-known characters of this genre are: Arlecchino, Pulcinella, the old Pantalone, etc. Its influence is visible in the works of great authors such as Shakesperare, Moliere, Goldoni, Lope de Rueda, Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina and Cervantes, among others.

 

 

 

THE WORKSHOP:

 

Commedia dell'Arte as presented nowadays, is an exacting discipline where practical ability and know-how are essential for those who intend to make the Theatre their career. The work with masks, fix types, gestus, improvisation and rithm will help us to discover this genre. The lessons will have three parts: technique, improvisation and canovaccio. During the course the different characters from Commedia dell'Arte will be studied with their physical mask and particular behavior. Conflicts between characters will also be studied with funny improvisations. Improvisation will be used as method of study of Commedia dell'Arte. At the end groups will work a final canovaccio (short story) with all characters. We will work always trying to develop actor's listening, alert and complicity with the partner, working always from the pleasure of playing. As it is an introductory course no previous knowledge is necessary. The workshop is totally practical. It will be necessary to wear to comfortable clothes and a belt. All languages are welcome to the workshop, since it is one of the basic pillars of Commedia dell'Arte: multilingualism. 

 

 

METHODOLOGY:

The workshop  is divided into five main parts:  

 

  1. The art of Playfulness 

  2. Technique

  3. Improvisation

  4. Canovaccio


The art of Playfulness:  The aim to put the body on alert, open and in good predisposition for working and creating. Actors will also work on the relationship with audience, timing and rhythm, complicity, theatre as a game, etc.

 

Technique: Movements and gestures of the "fixed types" of Commedia dell'Arte.

 

Practice: Actors will work on the behavior of the characters, situations in which they find themselves. By doing so actors will enrich their repertoire of lazzi (gags).

 

Improvisation: This is one of the key points of Commedia dell'Arte. Improvisation has three objectives:

  • Training

  • Creation 

  • Complicity

 

Canovaccio:  The actors are given the opportunity to put into practice everything they've learned. They will work on a short story with all characters.
