The 2019 Dell’Arte Intensive in Minneapolis

From studies of the natural world–its forms, forces, rhythms–to the discovery of characters. The physical play of the mask in time and space, leading to characterization, dramatic action and ensemble devising.

Come study with Dell’Arte teachers in a week-long mask intensive in collaboration with Soma Studios in Minneapolis. Throughout the week we will look at personal identity, character, and archetypes through the medium of the mask, focusing on the themes of revelation and transformation. Work will include physical training, mask technique, and collaborative play, with neutral masks, larval masks, character masks, and full body masks as our guides.

The Intensive includes 6 hours of class a day. All classes will take place at Soma Studios at 79 13th Ave NE, Studio 212 Minneapolis.
