Hi, I’m Corinna and I’ve been passionate about Commedia dell’Arte for over a decade. You might say that I’m now Australia’s foremost Commedia aficionado! I am an Australian based Commedia dell’Arte practitioner who has trained with Antonio Fava – a world master in the field – and who has a PhD focussed on Commedia dell’Arte. My PhD involved creating a resource for schoolteachers to assist them in introducing this genre to their students. I am heavily researched in all aspects of Commedia dell’Arte and the new National Arts Curriculum, making my work highly desirable for schools nationally and internationally, as I have found ways to link my work to the curriculum needs abroad. As a performer and director, I’m also interested in working with artists to develop their skills in the genre and to create contemporary performances authentic to genre. As I continue to travel the world sharing my skills, hope you’ll join me for part of the journey, learning the principles of Commedia dell’Arte so that Commedia dell’Arte will continue on in every time and place! I can provide you with everything you need to know about Commedia dell’Arte. I offer performances, resources and workshops, so if there’s anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask!
