Dell'Arte’s 2nd year ensemble will undertake an investigation of the two main questions of the M.F.A. program: How does the physical actor transform and also reveal him or herself through the mask of character? How does a new play take shape, born from the body-in-action and the actor's dramatic imagination? Each student explores the depth of their own transformative power, creating a character who is truly different from them, and possessed of the heightened physical and vocal dimension which "lives" on the stage. Full of passion and humor, each performance is by turns funny, poignant and surreal.
