Commedia dell’Arte – AREZZO

CFA TH 326

This acting class will develop the practical use of the masks of the stock characters of the Commedia dell'arte.

The application of Commedia masks in comic traditions from Goldoni through Gozzi to Molière and Marivaux may also be a feature of this course, depending on faculty. 3.0 credits. Spring semester.
