Commedia dell'Arte Masks

The Italian Commedia dell’Arte tradition which flourished throughout Europe from the 16th to 18th centuries has provided the roots and vocabulary for modern Western theatre and remained a strong influence on it. Its imprint can be seen in Shakespeare, Restoration comedy, melodrama, music hall, vaudeville, circus, pantomime as well as many modern comedies and TV sit-coms.

Durable and lightweight, Strangeface Commedia dell’Arte masks are crafted from high-impact plastic and hand-painted to performance standard finish, making them ideal for both professional and student use. Whether being used as an introduction to this influential mask form or to perform professionally, these masks represent high quality and value for money.

Our Commedia dell’Arte masks each come supplied with a length of black elastic and foam pads for comfort.
