Commedia dell'Arte characters are divided into four major families: Servants, Old Men, Lovers and Captains. The characters are fixed and with cumulative personalities. Each character has precise characteristics that are always the same, but his or her personality is never fully defined but accumulates in the different situations he or she faces in each performance. This technique of building the character's personality by immersing him or her in different situations potentially ad infinitum is the most successful writing technique in the literature and entertainment industry. The character always remains with his main characteristics and the stories change each time: Sherlock Holmes, Lupin, Dylan Dog, the Simpsons, Friends, and the list would still be very long.We will tackle a new family of characters each weekend and analyze both theoretically and practically the cumulative personality technique as a method of theatrical creation.
