  • 1.  Restoration Comedy

    Anyone have any lessons or lesson plans they'd be willing to share for teaching Restoration Comedy? I want to try something a little new with my advanced students this spring. Ordinarily I'd teach Stage Combat but right now with Covid a majority of my students aren't comfortable with any form of physical contact at all. Even touching or tapping hands is just too uncomfortable for some of them, so I need to create a whole new unit for the end of the term. I thought something that focused on individual movement and style might be fun.

    I had the same issue with my students this year. I wound up having an awesome Commedia Dell'Arte unit instead. It was great because they could work with masks and focus on physicality. I'm happy to share info if you are interested?
