Dell’Arte 1st year student show
This sell-out event delivers the best medicine of all in a spirited night of fiasco and frivolity where you can get serious about your funny. Come laugh at the clowns and learn to laugh at yourself…bring a friend and laugh at them too!
At times poetic, sublime, whimsical and provocative, the annual clown show marks the culmination of five weeks of experimentation and study. At Dell’Arte, Clown is the final training block of the first year curriculum, following terms in Physical Acting, Mask, Commedia dell’Arte, and Melodrama. In this territory the actor works with the smallest of masks – the red nose – to create a comic character who lives in a world of his or her own invention where the clowns logic is the motor and the inevitability of failure is redeemed by laughter.
Dell’Arte’s world-renowned program have taken clown characters developed during their training here and gone on to perform with Cirque du Soleil, Dragone Productions, Ringling Brothers, and Clowns Without Borders, among other prestigious organizations.
