Much dell'Arte About Nothing

Welcome to the mad, bad, sad world of the Bard – Commedia style... Much dell’Arte About Nothing is a hilarious mash-up of Shakespeare’s works, presented in the Commedia dell’Arte tradition. Utilising slapstick, masks, stage combat, dance and stock characters, watch familiar Shakespearean references be transformed and invigorated – all with a good dose of irreverence!

Matriark brings the best of the best in Commedia dell’Arte to the stage. This production is not just for Drama students; Much dell’Arte will enliven Shakespeare studies in English, giving great material for comparison of texts and an alternative to traditional adaptations.

Seeing the experts flaunt their talents on stage will visibly raise the bar on student learning.
