Masquerade Mask


Fraternal Compagnia (Italy/Scotland)

Two servants, Pasta and Pizza, are tasked by their master to introduce and showcase the cultural phenomenon that is Commedia dell’Arte. They are to bring the Masks on display – the old Venetian merchant, Pantalone, the servants Zanni and Arlecchino, the Doctor; the Captains, and more – to life. The show is presented in English and Italian, and through many games, jokes, and puns, it tackles Commedia's central themes: the love of power, the power of love, the hunger and misery of the less fortunate, and the magic that surrounds life and stage.
