Description

This study argues that performers who developed the commedia dell'arte in the 16th century did so by applying oral storytelling techniques to a multi-performer genre. The study argues that the predominant documentary evidence of this theatre phenomenon, the 800 extant scenarios, can be examined as specific literate elements in a theatrical process which can be delinated in relation to other well-documented oral processes.
