Italian incursion – Commedia Dell’Arte ‘Il Capitano’

on September 15, 2016

Last week the Grade 1 students were fortunate enough to attend an Italian incursion at the BASC building.  We watched two men perform a comedy show for about an hour. During this show the men portrayed various famous Italian characters – including ‘Il Capitano’ (The Captain), Arlecchino (an acrobat), Pantalone (A Merchant from Venice), Pedrolino and Il Dottore (The Doctor).  These characters were some of the favorite characters of 17th– and 18th–century European theatre.

We were so impressed with the quality of the incursion and look forward to rebooking next year for the Grade 1 students of 2017.

The children and teachers smiled, laughed and were thoroughly entertained by this performance.

Here are some of the photos.
