La Commedia Dell'Arte (Italian mask theatre) is where theatre meets improv and they elope to the circus on a runaway train, pursued by an enraged landlord.
The masks and broad characters help embolden and simplify the performers choices. As a style, Commedia captures the immediacy of the improvisor's spirit while extending the cheekiness of the story risks and the physicality of the characterisations.
The performance takes place at 8pm which is the second half of the End of Term Celebration. Audience are welcome to come at 7pm and watch the first half Student Jam before the performance.
