Italian Comedy becomes now very accessible to primary schools students in South Australia!

It is now sometimes we were proposing a new Commedia dell’Arte show, specifically designed for Primary Schools students,  that was not listed here yet. Not anymore, ladies and gentlemen.

Please find here below more details about it. If you have interests in different proposals, please feel free to browse around.


a performance with a mixed blend of Commedia dell’Arte, Circus and Magic.

Duration of the show: from 35 to 40 minutes plus Q&A time.

Fees for this performance: (in the Metro Area): $400 for the first 100 students plus $4 per additional student.

Using just one teaching performer (and a little audience involvement) “CIRCOMMEDIA” introduces up to 5 of the major Commedia dell’Arte characters (including servants, Masters, the Lovers and il Capitano). Within the structure of a show, new audiences are able to gain an introduction to this powerful and ancient performing art form.

Using physical comedy (slapstick), verbal gags (lazzi) in a semi-improvised form, this show leads the audience through the basics of Commedia dell’Arte and the basic building blocks it provided, and still provides, to modern western theatre.

Commedia dell’Arte resonates with all audiences because it’s based on the basic human necessities of our everyday lives. Everybody knows how it feels to be hungry, sleepy, greedy, tired, in love and all the other emotions that make us human. Of course this understanding varies and modified versions of the shows are presented to younger audiences.

This show is a perfect practical introduction to Commedia dell’Arte, especially for Drama and Italian students of all ages.
