COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE 
The traditional Italian Comedy is a highly physicalized style of theatre about urgency and passion. The characters are larger than life, delightful to play and exciting to watch. Classic archetypes such as Arlecchino, Pantalone, Capitano and Dottore come to life, allowing the actor to break through inhibitions and physical boundaries.
