Description

A companion to John Rudlin's best-selling "Commedia dell'Arte: A Handbook for Actors", this book covers both the history and professional practice of commedia dell'arte companies from 1568 to the early 21st century. Suitable for both the beginner and the professional, it contains historical and contemporary company case histories, details on company organization, and tips on practical stagecraft. This book enables the reader to understand how successful commedia dell'arte companies function, and how we can learn from past and modern practice to create a lively and dynamic form of theatre. It includes tips on: writing a scenario; mask-making; building a stage; designing a backdrop; costume; and music.
