Playing with Commedia Dell’Arte with Catriona Leger
Sunday, August 4 to Friday, August 9, 2019
99 University Ave, Kingston, Ontario.
This course is great for those who want to explore the foundations of comedy and gain a deeper understanding of physical comedy and characterization.
In this interactive, hands -on workshop, participants will explore the art of mask play in the Commedia Dell’Arte style. Through various games, exercises and improvisation, mask technique and nearly a dozen stock characters will be covered in a joyous and inclusive manner. Participants will come away with new approaches to physical comedy, a practical understanding of mask and Commedia, as well as an awareness of their own personal and individual approach to the art form. Note: While fun, this highly physical workshop can be demanding on the body - a personal warm up in advance of each session is strongly encouraged.
