Splendid Productions Commedia Dell-Arte workshop

Posted on

Splendid Productions visited Long Road to hold a workshop on Commedia Dell’Arte for our Drama students. Commedia Dell’Arte originated in Venice in the 17th century. It was a form of street theatre with improvised scenes between masters, servants and lovers. The workshop looked at ensemble work, grummelot (a flow of sounds to represent speech), stretching physicality and vocality, clowning and creating stock characters without using masks.
