An interactive workshop, talk and solo performance by
Oliver Crick (Artistic Director of The Fabulous
Old Spot Theatre Company).
Commedia dell’arte has been considered a ‘discreet’ historical subject for a long while, but is now being recognised outside Italy as at least the equal to Shakespeare and the Elizabethans’ contribution to theatre in the early modern period.
Olly Crick will consider its history, both in the Renaissance and in post-Fascist Italy. He will examine its influence both as a theatrical form and in contemporary actor training. He will conclude with Commedia dell’arte extracts from his solo show From Street to Salon. The performance will be followed by a question and answer session.
Chaired by Chris Stamatakis (UCL)
