Mission Statement

Dell'Arte International is the North American center for theatre training, research, and performance of the actor-creator. We are a committed community of artists who model and share in a sustained ensemble artistic practice. International in scope, grounded in the natural living world, inspired by our non-urban setting, Dell'Arte International explores theatre making, theatre practice and theatre training for ourselves, the world and the future. Dell'Arte International seeks to create resonant works of theatre that are visceral, athletic and that engage the mystery underlying all experience. We revel in ferocious play. We believe in: Reflecting the cultural, ethnic, social and historic diversity of our community as well as expanding it. Exploring the relationship between art and place, artist and community. Teaching by our example as well as our pedagogy. The power of the arts to enrich the education and lives of young people. The power of theatre to transform artists and audiences. The ability of the actor-creator to make art that reflects the complexity of living, art that is both specific and universal. Ensemble and collaborative practices that place the artist at the center of the work and the organization. The importance of independent cultural production to our society's health. The value of our work to the field as a laboratory for exploration and development. The importance of play. The seriousness of comedy.
