Acting with the Body
Acting with the Body

Workshop organized by Bottegavaga

The term commedia dell’arte appeared in Venice in the 1700s to describe a form of theater in which actors wear masks and costumes that identify characters that are still well-known today, such as Harlequin, Columbina, and Pulcinella. In the twentieth century, Jean Miró, Pablo Picasso, and Gino Severini resumed this ancient tradition. An exploration of the commedia dell’arte inspires an acting workshop in which families experiment transforming their bodies with leather masks and create a street-theater parade inspired by masterpieces of modern art.
