Teaching Commedia dell’Arte
By Tony Kishawi

Teaching Commedia dell’Arte is a teaching manual that will enable teachers to effectively communicate the mystery of Commedia dell’Arte.

Tony Kishawi has a performance career spanning 35 years, coupled with extensive experience teaching Commedia. Tony himself struggled at school with learning difficulties and feels that this gave him an insight and empathy for students.

An experienced workshop provider, Tony has aided the careers of many actors and performers.

He has developed strategies that ensure students of the subject really ‘get’ what it is all about.

The handbook contains concise planned lessons which can be extended or shortened depending on the needs of the classroom. Your entire unit can be structured around the book.

Having trained in Commedia dell’ Arte at the International School of Comic Acting in Italy, studying under Antonio Fava an artist of international acclaim, Tony has developed into an expert in Commedia dell’Arte in Australia.

If you wish to teach a truly stimulating, deeply engaging and absolutely worthwhile unit within your drama class, go no further than this text. Not only is the Commedia Dell' Arte unit I have developed solely from this book a favourite amongst my students - I myself cannot wait to teach this unit again next year.

To me, this is the most valuable resource as you can find a lot of information floating around on what the characters are - but having exercises to teach these and have students remember and understand is the most important thing.
