The show celebrates our namesake, and is a lively comic form featuring bold physical play, masks, bawdy humor, and virtuosic improvised performance. Archetypal characters are at the heart of this timeless human comedy that knows no bounds, yet requires great precision and dexterity from the actors.
Dell’Arte’s late co-founder Carlo Mazzone-Clementi described Commedia dell’Arte as “a kind of theatre that points out our human frailties and foibles in such an honest, unpretentious way...seems to me to be much needed today. In a world gone mad, who has more to say to us than the zanies?"
