Servant of Two Masters
Opening April 18 at LATEA Theatre!
Servant of Two Masters (1743) is a comedy written by the Italian playwright, Carlo Goldoni.
This adaptation will be 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. In breaking or hiphop dance, dynamics and energy can shift quickly just as Truffoldino’s emotions shift as he is handed another letter to deliver to his master. The goal is to create a complexity on stage that supports the naturally narrative style of social dance. This production harkens back to the roots of Commedia while invoking something fresh and modern.
