Dell’Arte is the North American center for theatre training, research, and performance of the actor-creator. We are a regional arts center serving the large rural area of California’s North Coast. International in scope, grounded in the natural living world and inspired by our non-urban setting, Dell’Arte explores theatre making, theatre practice and theatre training for ourselves and our community, for the world, and for the future. One of our deepest values is engendering the relationship between art and place, artist and community. We are a committed community of artists who for over 35 years have modeled and shared a sustained ensemble practice. DAI consists of a professional, international touring ensemble, the Dell’Arte Company; a professional training program, Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre, offering a one-year certificate program and the only accredited MFA in Ensemble-based Physical Theatre in the world; and the annual summer Mad River Festival.
