Theatre for Good
The traditional theatre form, Commedia Dell’Arte, is a more than 500 year old genre of popular theatre that uses stock characters and physical comedy. However, the form's inherent harms against marginalized identities and fixed ideas of power have gone largely un-scrutinized for educational and equity-centered purposes, and those harms are often repeated in productions and classrooms without acknowledging that the form itself perpetuates inequity.
There is a better way. We introduce a somatic, anti-oppressive performance pedagogy for a new generation of masked, comic acting.
On the stage, in the classroom, and in the studio, Waxing Moon thrives on collaboration, and we work hard to facilitate authentic connections.
