This is an exciting and packed one-day workshop with international commedia dell'arte expert Didi Hopkins. Didi will take you through the history, characters and traits of Italy's ancient performance form. Gain a grounding in the commedia tradition and explore your own performance potential. Learn how to improvise as part of a typical commedia company and gain concrete experience of the archetypes that underpin most contemporary comedy. The day is a masterclass in technique via a focus on the body. If you are a comedy writer, performer or fan then Commedia dell'Arte is a brilliant and unique way to extend your practice. No performance experience is necessary but this will be a physical class.
The class is all Saturday 4th February in New Cross.
