Commedia dell’arte II

Ana Sokolović

Commedia dell’arte II has been performed in Colorado Springs, Halifax, London, Montréal, New York City, Ostrava, Prague and Vancouver…

Commedia dell’arte, an inexhaustible source of characters, impressed me from my childhood. The characters, initially a theater of improvisation of the street in Italy, present truly the archetypes of the characters of every society in the world. Alive, funny, touching, ridiculous, exuberant, cunning or sarcastic, each character inspired one of the movements of my work. This cycle brings together three compositions for string quartet connected with the same theme. There is a possibility that other characters will be added in the future.
