Commedia dellÂArte Â AREZZO
CFA TH 326
This acting class will develop the practical use of the masks of the stock characters of the Commedia dell'arte. Through work on gesture, voice and movement within a specific socio/historical context, students will explore the characteristics of Arlechino, Zanni, Brighella, Pantalone, Colombina and others, with the intention of developing the student's own personal version of the character. The application of Commedia masks in comic traditions from Goldoni through Gozzi to MoliÃ¨re and Marivaux may also be a feature of this course, depending on faculty. 3.0 credits. Spring semester. Course offered through the Accademia dell'Arte.
