DEP JC1 Commedia dell'Arte Workshop

On 5 March 2013, the JC1 DEP class had the privilege of participating in a workshop conducted on Commedia dell'Arte by Marco Luly, a leading practicioner in this theatre form.


Commedia dell'Arte originates from Italian comedy, and uses masks and improvisation to create comic characters. 

The JC1 students were taught to play characters using only their bodies, and not words.
