Commedia dell’Arte workshops for children and parents: This quintessentially Italian theatre class will lead you into the art of acting with masks in the Commedia dell’Arte tradition, a legendary theatre style that is at the heart of Theatre in the Western culture. We’ll be diving together into the crazy world of Arlecchino and Commedia, where anything is possible. Through various games and physical exercises that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy, even absolute beginners and children, we’ll discover the joy of wearing a mask. You will play in a group and learn how to move and creatively transform yourself into a character of Commedia dell’Arte. You will experience how intensely alive a mask can be and what an unbelievable energetic bond it can create! I will guide you and your kids, together with my colleague Vanni, to explore and create your own character. You could be Arlecchino, Pantalone, the Captain, the Doctor or the Zanni! We will tell you some incredible stories about them while you will get a chance to wear traditional hand-made leather masks and feel their magic. At the end of our class we'll have the pleasure to taste all together some traditional handmade Venetian biscuits, (baked by me and Vanni) and an awesome hot-chocolate!
I'm a professional actress and English Language teacher. I have performed in theatre and worked as a teacher using storytelling and drama for more than ten years. I live in Venice where I've been working with Vanni Carpenedo and his wife Alberta Toninato in various Goldoni and Shakespeare productions since 2018. We are co-founders of Bottegavaga theatre company. We took part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2019 with our last show “Arlecchino torn in three” and with our Commedia workshops for kids. We love to share our passion for theatre with people from all over the world and to transfer our masks’ bursting humanity anywhere!
