COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE EVENING PERFORMANCE

Friday 28 and Saturday 29 May 2010


FRIDAY 28 MAY 2010






“Commedia per te” ... for you


“a poco a poco” ...little by little - Combined schools drama students
Directed by Tony Kishawi


A group of drama students drawn from the Brisbane district high schools combine to produce 30 minutes of Commedia mayhem and madness. 'Little by little' you'll be seduced by their charm and talent into the magical world of Commedia, where you, the audience, become a snippet of the scene, a piece of the plot, a magnet for the mayhem.







“Glue” - Birdwing Lane Theatre
Written by Karlo Bran
Directed by Ben Cornfoot, with Clint Bolster and Tammy Weller.

George has invented glue! He's convinced it's going to change the world, but his wife Wendy just isn't impressed. Ah, the trials of matrimony. This could be a short but sweet snapshot of the trials and tribulations of married life, a comment on how modern society stifles our creative juices, a condemnation of monogamy, or just ten minutes of funny stuff. Featuring Commedia-trained actors (who kept changing the lines), Birdwing Lane Theatre presents an absurdist, random, off the wall comedy that will stick in your head like... Glue!

“Commedia Viva” - Commedia Academy of Australia

Written by Antonio (Giri) Mazzella & Giovanni (Sanjiva) Margio

Never heard of Commedia? Well, you're not alone! Now is your chance to meet the characters of the Commedia dell’Arte; agile Arlecchino, lazy Pulcinella, blustering Capitano, miserly Pantalone, pompous Dottore, the swooning Sweethearts, and others.
Learn historical background and social context of early theatre as you laugh your way through comedic skits and scenarios - entertaining for both the novice and the expert

COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE EVENING PERFORMANCE


SATURDAY 29 MAY 2010






“Festa Commedia”



La Signora presents iSize - Corrina Di Niro - Interform


iSize takes a cheeky look at the modern day corporate woman.


A blend of burlesque & dance…just what is a woman to do when caught in such a dilemma?













The Black Nonnas - Commedia Academy of Australia
Written by Antonio (Giri) Mazzella & Giovanni (Sanjiva) Margio


They're big they're black and they're hairy - these Nonnas are the Italian Grandmothers your mother warned you about!


Maria and Antonietta are on the lookout for husbands, pasta or vino. They enjoy mangling traditional Italian songs about death, tragedy and donkeys.



“Women's Breath” - Carmencita Palemo


Written by Carmencita Palermo

Feminine masks coming to life through dance and music.

Be entertained by the different faces of the feminine mask. A performance merging East and West based on the Balinese Topeng mask dance technique and the Italian Commedia dell'Arte. It is a joyful journey that will take you through Asia, the Middle East and South America. It's an interactive perfomance that will mesmorise you into the rhythm....
