Times Standard (Eureka) - - FRONT PAGE -

Dell’Arte In­ter­na­tional has an­nounced a one-time­only schol­ar­ship for its corner­stone Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Pro­gram, a one-year pro­gram de­signed for stu­dents with a de­sire to jour­ney into the realms of ac­tor-cre­ated theater.

The “Hum­boldt Schol­ar­ship” — which is for the 2020/21 aca­demic year — is open to all Hum­boldt County res­i­dents and cov­ers one-third of the tu­ition (amount­ing to a $4,200 dis­count). To ap­ply to the Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Pro­gram and be con­sid­ered for the schol­ar­ship, visit www.del­ or con­tact Matt Chap­man, Dell’Arte’s di­rec­tor of ad­mis­sions, at matt@del­

Dell’Arte’s Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Pro­gram is open to per­form­ers of all ages and back­grounds, and in­cludes train­ing in the F.M. Alexan­der Tech­nique, phys­i­cal aware­ness and re­spon­sive­ness, voice and move­ment, play and im­pro­vi­sa­tion, as well as the study of mask, clown, melo­drama and com­me­dia dell’arte.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion of theater dy­nam­ics, the ac­tor and the space, char­ac­ter and re­la­tion­ship, take place through as­sign­ments pre­sented weekly in Per­for­mance Labs.

Classes be­gin Oct. 3. If Cal­i­for­nia pub­lic health rec­om­men­da­tions pre­clude con­ven­ing classes in Oc­to­ber, Dell’Arte will de­lay the start of the school year un­til it is safe to re­sume in-per­son in­struc­tion. Any sched­ule changes will be an­nounced by Aug. 1. Cur­rent Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Pro­gram stu­dent Anas­ta­sia Bar­ron is grate­ful for the unique space Dell’Arte pro­vides for the ac­tor to ex­pand their imag­i­na­tion and “be the cre­ator of their own world.”

“Dell’Arte is the ideal place for me be­cause of the em­pha­sis on mak­ing orig­i­nal work, train­ing in phys­i­cal, em­bod­ied per­for­mance and learn­ing how to cre­ate as a mem­ber of an en­sem­ble,” Bar­ron said.

Dell’Arte is in a “rolling ad­mis­sions dead­line” for the fall. Com­pleted ap­pli­ca­tion port­fo­lios will be re­viewed as soon as they are re­ceived, and of­fers to join the fall co­hort will con­tinue un­til the class is full.

The Dell’Arte In­ter­na­tional School of Phys­i­cal Theatre of­fers the only ac­cred­ited MFA in Ensem­bleBased Phys­i­cal Theatre in the world. Its train­ing pro­grams at­tract stu­dents from across the globe, with more than 1,000 grad­u­ates from 41 coun­tries since the for­ma­tion of the school in 1975.

It is one of three in­sti­tu­tions of higher ed­u­ca­tion in Hum­boldt County, along with Hum­boldt State Univer­sity in Ar­cata and Col­lege of the Red­woods in Eureka. Dell’Arte is lo­cated in Blue Lake.
