Event detailsAbstract:
Commedia dell'Arte performer and teacher Paola Cavallin chats to Odd Eyes director Emilia Teglia about the history of Commedia dell'Arte, its resilience and internationalism..

Description:
 

On Friday 25th February, 8.00 pm, on Odd Eyes Theatre Facebook, we catch up with Paola Cavallin, Commedia dell'Arte expert and long-term collaborator.

We will share memories of hilarious workshops and performances you might have been part of; learn some extraordinary facts about how the theatre of Commedia dell'Arte survived censorship, plague and the Holy Inquisition (2020 was a breeze in comparison) and unearth the secret language it used to overcome cultural and socio-economic barriers, spreading around the world from market squares to royal palaces.

We will also lure Paola into performing some impromptu sketches just for the occasion, using some of the stunning handmade leather masks from her personal collection.  

In the lead up to the live stream we will share some of the videos and pictures from our Commedia dell'Arte programme on Instagram, so keep tuned on all Odd eyes Theatre's social media channels.
