Maschera Comica nella Commedia dell'Arte

La Disciplina d'Attore, Universalità e Continuità dell'Improvvisa, Poetica della Sopravivenza

Con la sua apparizione nell’Italia del XVI secolo e la successiva diffusione e adattamento in tutta Europa, si determina una svolta importantissima nella storia del teatro occidentale: con la Commedia, il Teatro da ritualistico o dilettantistico diventa professione (arte), nasce l’attore nuovo, depositario di una scienza del recitare. Nasce, quindi, il Teatro Moderno.
Riproposta oggigiorno, la Commedia dell’Arte si rivela disciplina rigorosa, della quale la pratica e la conoscenza sono indispensabili a coloro che del teatro intendono fare una scelta professionale.

Máscara Cómica en la Commedia dell'Arte

La Disciplina de Actor, Universalidad y Continuidad de la Improvvisa, Poética de la Supervivencia
El primer estudio metodológico y estético sobre la Commedia dell’Arte. ¿Qué es Commedia? ¿Qué debería ser? ¿Qué puede ser? ¿Qué no es Commedia? Este no es un estudio sobre lo que fue la Commedia dell’Arte; esa historia es el argumento de prácticamente todos los demás libros sobre esta materia. Temas tratados: La estructura de la Commedia, su poética, sus temas. La máscara, su significado, su uso. Los personajes, sus comportamientos, como interactúan. Commedia dell’Arte o Improvvisa, Commedia Mercenaria, Zannata. Hay quien dice que ha estado muerta durante siglos, otros que nunca existió, los hay también que dicen que está desfasada en nuestros días. Pero la Commedia no ha llegado a su fin. Continúa de un modo dinámico, con un vigor renovado, fiel a sus orígenes internacionales y a su espíritu universal. El autor se comprometió a expandir el alcance de la Commedia desde el inicio de su carrera profesional. Este libro es el resultado de una continua investigación y de una experiencia directa como actor, director y profesor. Los principios establecidos aquí son el fruto de su experiencia y un punto de partida hacia nuevos y más grandes logros.

Comic Mask in the Commedia dell'Arte

The Actor Training, Improvisation, and the Poetics of Survival

Nobody says Shakespeare is dead, Antonio Fava tells us, but Commedia, they say, is dead. Why? Because clearly, he goes on, we have Shakespeare's texts, but nobody knows what to do with the improvisation that is the basis of the Commedia dell'Arte, despite massive documentation. This book by Fava, one of the few living master teachers of Commedia dell'Arte, is the first aesthetic and methodological study of the traditional Italian theater form--the first to describe, in a precise and practical way, what Commedia is and what it should be.
The mask -as object, symbol, character, theatrical practice, even spectacle itself- is the central metaphor around which Fava builds his discussion of structure, themes, characters, and methods. Drawing on twenty years of research conducted through his work as performer, director, mask maker, and scholar, he offers extensive practical, philosophical, and technical guidelines to performing the stock characters of Commedia, observing its structure, extracting its poetics, exploring its themes, and using the mask. A densely layered text combining historical fact, personal experience, philosophical speculation, and passionate opinion, and including copious illustrations -period drawings, prints, and color photographs of leather Commedia masks made by Fava himself- The Comic Mask in the Commedia dell'Arte is a rich work of singular insight into one of the world's most venerable forms of theater.
