Learning outcomes

By analyzing specific issues of the History of theatre, we intend to introduce the student to the theoretical and methodological tools offered by the representative medium with particular regard to the field of communication. The course also aims to offer the necessary skills to comprehend and examine independently all of the coefficients proposed by a prose show.

Program

Contents:
Over the course of about two centuries, approximately from the middle of the sixteenth to the middle of the 18th century, the representative techniques of the Commedia dell’Arte masks became symbol of a spectacular and business-like way of performing. This is essentially a successful theater system that favors the economy of doing and distributing spectacle in a free market. After about two centuries of uninterrupted fortune, the decline is conventionally enshrined by Goldoni’s reform in favor of an totally written text and a performing technique without masks. During Nineteenth century the Commedia dell'Arte technique entered the common imagination with the characteristics of a myth until its rediscovery and new affirmation thanks to Giorgio Strehler (1921-1997) and Dario Fo (1926-2016).
