all student shows are pay-what-you-can

Guaranteed to provoke boisterous laughter, Commedia dell’Arte is a lively comic form featuring bold physical play, masks, bawdy humor, and virtuosic improvised performance. Archetypal characters are the heart of this timeless human comedy that knows no bounds, yet requires great precision and dexterity from the actors. Performed by the students of Dell’Arte’s Professional Training Program, this show is an annual community favorite and sells out quickly!

Melodrama

Created and performed by DAI’s 1st-year students

All student shows are pay-what-you-can

Melodrama is a heightened, musical form of physical theatre where unbridled passions reign, and where the forces of good in human nature triumph over terrible obstacles. In this evening of short, original melodramas created and performed by the students of Dell’Arte’s Professional Training Program, audiences are moved to boo and cheer as characters overcome seemingly impossible odds.

Tragedy

Created and Performed by DAI’s 2nd-year MFA/AEP students

All student shows are pay-what-you-can

Experience the awesome, visceral power of the Chorus as Dell’Arte’s 2nd Year MFA Ensemble dives into the realm of Tragedy, a theatrical form with ancient roots in the human experience. Through physical and vocal alchemy, the actors conjure universal forces at play in the space of the stage. In the words of theatre visionary Antonin Artaud, Tragedy bracingly reminds us all that, in spite of our best intentions, “the sky can still fall on our heads.”
