Invterview with Artistic Director Benjamin Gould (excerpt from interview with NVTV, first broadcast 7th October 2015).

Benjamin Gould formed Commedia of Errors in 2012 and has been the pivotal creative force behind this exciting new company. He both directs and performs in all of the company’s productions as well as adapting and writing the scripts for performance. He is also the company’s mask maker, making unique leather masks from moulds of his own creation.

We believe that Commedia dell’Arte is one of the most complete forms of actor training and can offer useful skills and techniques no matter the performance discipline.
