The Lir Academy - Acting - Commedia dell’Arte



This one-day course will give participants an insight into Commedia dell'Arte, a deeply physical improvisational theatre technique that finds a story by going deep into the heart of characters.

Commedia dell’Arte is a dynamic and invigorating challenge blending comedy and theatre. You will push your own abilities to another level and learn about yourself in the process, hopefully discovering new skills. This training is also applicable to performance in any form, cultivating expertise in character work, physical embodiment, creation of character image, make up masks, storytelling, and acting.
