ABOUT THE SHOW
Commedia dell’arte is an Italian form of masked theatre dating back to the 15th century Europe. Commedia dell’arte is a devised form of theatre built on physical comedy, mask work, movement, clown, improvisation, and audience interaction. Commedia dell’arte is funny, raunchy, political, satirical, and it does not pull its punches. Commedia dell’arte isn’t a well-known art-form today, but we can see its influences in sitcoms, sketch comedy, cartoons and modern-day clown shows.
