For those of you who have just wandered in off the street, maybe in search of Theatre,maybe in search of the mythical beast called Commedia Dell’arte, look no further. Old Spot Theatre and myself do both,sometimes by performing, sometimes by lecturing, sometimes by teaching and sometimes just by talking about it. This coming weekend I am off to Windsor,Ontario to attend a Commedia dell’arte academic symposium,meet people, talk shop and be amazed if Antonio Fava and Carlo Boso both turn up .Two maestros in their field in the same place for maybe the first time. I also hope to be meeting some distinguished folk in the field and ask them to contribute to a volume I am putting together with Ms Judith Chaffee from the University of Boston: the subject ? Commedia dell’arte of course.
