Commedia Clowning

Commedia dell’arte began in the 16th century in Italy and its mask theatre became the basis for modern day comedy and clowning! This solo show introduces the audience to well-known historic Commedia characters such as Pantalone, the grumpy mayor, and the know-it-all il Dottore. Using music, mime, magic and mayhem, it is presented as a clowning show full of energy, fun and silliness!

This show goes into detail on the masks themselves, the characterisation of the commedia characters, as well as encouraging audience participation and circus skills. It is a show that can be enjoyed by all ages!

The presenter was fantastic. So calm, friendly & professional on arrival & throughout the incursion. They generously answered a number of questions from the Year 8 students. The performance was an excellent examples of Commedia Dell Arte & it gave our students inspiration for their own performances. I look forward to booking again in Term 3!
