The Servant of Two Masters

Spring 2015 at Teatro LATEA: Thanks to all who saw the show and supported! 

The Servant of Two Masters (1743) is a comedy written by the Italian playwright, Carlo Goldoni. 

Nicolas Minas' adaptation was brought to life through the use of clowning, eccentric dance, and hip-hop to create a physical vocabulary that is unique to this particular story. The play requires a heightened sense of physicality and finds humor in both the verbal and physical acrobatics. This production harkened back to the roots of Commedia while invoking something fresh and modern.
