Theatre Lab 8 - Commedia dell'arte

Miss Joanie Buenaventura's class just finished a unit on Commedia dell'arte (Italian Renaissance Theatre) and the students had to create a modern day "Canovaccio" or scene with authentic Commedia characters. They also made their own masks and had to add visual effects. Here is a modern take on a Canovaccio with Pantaleon Columbina, Isabella, Vittoria and Rosaura. Please enjoy the video!
