Abstract

The vitality and spontaneity of Commedia dell’Arte as an acting style, and the tradition of performing with masks, has applications to many contemporary theatre forms far beyond the traditional scenarios normally associated with Commedia. One need not wait to be cast in a revival of The Servant of Two Masters or Scapin to find that Commedia training is a useful tool for the contemporary actor.
