Registration is closed.

Commedia dell’Arte for Teaching Artists


The masterclass series is SDEA’s platform to advocate regular professional development among drama educators, drama trainers and theatre practitioners through flexible and skills-focused 5-hour workshops. After a thrilling demo/performance session on Commedia dell’Arte Day last February, SDEA is pleased to have master of Commedia dell’Arte Marco Luly back to facilitate a special masterclass for teaching artists. The masterclass unpacks the main features of the theatre form such as movement, mime and vocal modulation. It also provides you the opportunity to experience actor-training with a focus on body expression, body mastery and improvisation to cultivate self-awareness as well as precision in the use of gestures and voice.
