NYU Commedia dell'Arte


For 20 years, Jim Calder has brought undergraduate students to NYU’s Florence campus to study Commedia dell’Arte. The Commedia dell’Arte workshop at La Pietra is an exciting and rigorous program that teaches drama students, through the vehicle of the Commedia stock characters, what it feels like to believe in something, to want something, and to go after it. Students take an array of classes with Jim and Master Teacher Jacob Olesen, as well as other renowned faculty members who visit Florence each summer: prop construction with Joan Harmon, Grotowski training with André Baer, and many more.
