This course is focusing on the study of the Italian theatre form Commedia dell’Arte. Central to the course will be the study of the stock characters, scenarios and historical background of the original improvised comedy performance, with its stylised masks and high energy physical comedy.
It is also possible to use Commedia dell’Arte as a basis for Theatre Form study and the external paper.
You need to be comfortable in the spotlight and will be working at NCEA L2/3 curriculum levels.
