Commedia dell’Arte originated in Italy in the 16th century and quickly spread all across Europe, playing a crucial role in the development of Western Theatre. Its influence can be found in the work of famous western playwrights such as Shakespeare, Moliere and Goldoni. It is still popular today and can be found even in movies and on TV.
The main characteristics of Commedia dell’Arte include:
- stock characters
- use of mask
- mime techniques
- lots of humour
- lots of improvisations
Masks teach the actor awareness and control of movements and gestures. The masks compel the actor to recognize the essential gestures and avoid the superfluous ones. They propel the performer to an enhanced level of expression. They demand clarity of intent and precision in the use of gestures and voice.
About Marco Luly
Marco has conducted classes on Commedia dell’Arte history and techniques, given lectures, and worked in cross-cultural productions with students and actors in many countries. He specializes in the production of Commedia dell’Arte, Medieval Theatre and of plays by the Father of Italian Comedy, Carlo Goldoni. He is committed to reviving this unique form of theatre, and has won acclaim for rediscovering medieval and renaissance period manuscripts and adapting them in a modern style.
Marco is also the founder, Artistic Director and writer for Luoghi dell’Arte in Rome. Since 1993 he has led his company to perform and lead workshops in Asia, Europe and America.
When asked in an interview what kind of “raw materials” an actor must possess in order to play Commedia dell’Arte, Marco answered:
Flexibility and ability to interact. Commedia dell' Arte is first of all an "actor's form of theatre" meaning that the actor is at the very center of the stage, the most important element in the show. Actors must be ready to improvise, aware that they are working in a team and ready to help or go along with the others' improvisations. Commedia dell' Arte actors must work with their brains as well as with their bodies.
About The Workshops
The objective of the workshop is to develop acting skills and to train actors, as well as improving self awareness and participation in group work.
This form of theatre uses a great deal of movement, mime and vocal modulation. The intellectual meaning of words is not such an important factor. Therefore it opens to actors from different language/cultural backgrounds.
