Similar to Physical Theatre, Commedia is a performance skill that transcends language and location and is as relevant today as it was 400 years ago. It’s thought to have influenced Shakespeare and its character structure is still seen today in many comedies such as ‘The I.T Crowd’ and ‘One Man Two Guvnors’ which was based on one of the only Commedia set scripts, ‘A Servant of Two Masters’ by Goldini.
So much emphasis is put on the show with very little put on the Business. As a well rounded performer it is imperative that you understand the day to day realities of being a self employed performer.
