Legacies of Commedia dell’Arte Conference

Nov 21, 2019
UC Riverside

Emerging in the middle of the 16th century, commedia dell’arte was an improvised, popular performance form based on stock characters. Although considered by some a quintessentially “Italian” artform, recent scholarship emphasizes the influence of Asian, Middle Eastern and minority cultures, as well as Christian European ones.  

“Legacies of Commedia dell’Arte Conference: ‘Others’ and the Production of Theatre from Early-Modern Italy through Modern-Day California” is an interdisciplinary conference bringing together various scholars from across the UC as well as the US and Canada and from the fields of history, comparative literatures, theatre, performance studies, cultural studies, poetry, music, dance and art. The conference is free and open to the public.
