Matriark Art Theatre presents
Much dell’Arte About Nothing

Much dell’Arte About Nothing is a hilarious mash-up of Shakespeare’s works, presented in the Commedia dell’Arte tradition. Featuring slapstick, masks, stage combat, dance and stock characters, watch your favourite Shakespearean references be transformed and invigorated - all with a good dose of irreverence!

There is no better way to engage with Commedia than through a Matriark Theatre experience. Seeing these experts flaunt their talents on stage will visibly improve student learning. This production is not just for Drama students; Much dell’Arte About Nothing will enliven studies of Shakespeare in English. Each performance will be followed by a detailed Q&A, including discussion of how Shakespeare was influenced by Italian Comedy, and detailed demonstrations of techniques.

Much Dell'Arte About Nothing Workshop
