About this product
- DescriptionCommedia Oz is designed to assist the interpretation and playing of Commedia in an Australian context and is a training manual for teachers, students, actors and directors. Chapters cover the history and influence of Commedia; suggestions for modern interpretations; activities and exercises; the role of the director and the actor's journal; training actors; an interview with Jacques Lecoq (the French Commedia actor/trainer); a professional script; and ideas for units of work and assessment. There is also a glossary and a reference section for further reading.
