Teacher Workshops

Professional Development for Teachers – Teacher Commedia Workshops

Develop your confidence to teach Commedia dell’Arte walks, postures, gestures and more to your students!

Workshops are for Arts teachers, language teachers, professional practitioners and workshop leaders. They provide an exceptional opportunity to develop teaching and performance skills in relation to the new National Arts Curriculum; a key focus in Corinna’s recent PhD research. Components are taught in an educational manner, providing ideas for how teachers can bring to life Commedia dell’Arte in their classrooms. Teachers will learn how to deliver Commedia dell’Arte in a sequential learning manner and will develop skills for teaching relevant theatre.

Central training features of PDs include:

Exploring the principles and reference point of Commedia dell’Arte, improvisation as a tool for creating work, mask, physical theatre, comic acting, ensemble work, gestures and voice. Teachers engage in a practical workshop and seminar exploring the history of the genre, its movement over time and place, the benefits of teaching Commedia dell’Arte in schools, ideas for going beyond Goldoni, and discovering new ways to support students in creating dynamic and contemporary Commedia dell’Arte performances.

In 2014, Corinna will be leading PD’s in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Launceston, Canberra, Auckland and Christchurch. Workshops run on weekends from 9:30-4:30pm each day in a venue within the CBD. Participants receive teachers’ notes and certificates, plus 10% off any merchandise they purchase on the day.
