Don't know what the heck International Commedia Day is? Don’t really know what commedia is - but you’re feeling "curious"? Seen the Commedia Company do something astonishing and think, "I gotta do THAT!" Now's your chance to jump into a big ol' bucket-load of fun and trouble! For free! 

Get up under some masks and discover something about how to bring great physical expression and specificity to your performance AND to create hilarious and astounding characters AND to develop games and comic material deeply tethered to character and the comic world.

But maybe you’re all like, “Isn’t commedia all stupid and hokey and like from some kinda third-rate Ren faire?” Yes, sometimes! But not how we’re gonna rock it. The archetypes of commedia are both ancient and still among us in life and on TV and the movies and theatre (if anybody still cares about that!). We will pursue commedia as it exists in the contemporary world. And then we’ll go around the corner and have a drink!

If you have “experience,” good. If you have no “experience,” good! International Commedia Day is about getting the word out all across the world on this one day about the big stupid, astonishing fun and poetry to be found by pursuing the world of the commedia! 

Monday, February 25, 7:30-10pm in Brooklyn. For specific location and to register please email!
