“Fools In Progress Theatre Company” is a Sydney based, dynamic group of professionally trained actors, teachers and artists who have come together from diverse paths to showcase the origins of modern comedy through traditional Commedia dell’Arte performances and workshops.
Founded in 2006 by Bianca Bonino - Fools In Progress Theatre Co. continues to demonstrate, highlight (and underline) the relevance, importance and intense significance Commedia dell’Arte holds in the mainstream media and theatrical classrooms of the 21st century.
All our performers extensively trained in Italy at the International School of Comic Acting founded and directed by Antonio Fava and collaborate to create original performances that are topical, political, spontaneous and hilarious for the young & the young-at-heart.
Together we probe, promote, preserve & perform this classic style of theatre, protecting the heritage of what is not only a significant part of European culture or, the oldest surviving tradition of Western theatre but also - the birthplace of slapstick, stand-up & satirical comedy.

Reflecmedia 'Chromatte' green/blue screen system.

Surprisingly- "The Fools" are great with technology and we pride ourselves in developing and utilizing the latest and most innovative tech we can by seamlessly integrating it into our performances to increase the spectacle, improve cinematography in our productions and play Commedia dell' arte - in a whole new way.

We LOVE this new system by Reflecmedia which is a grey- highly reflective backdrop that can be instantly changed from a green screen to a blue screen at the flick of a button. Not only that but it allows for zero throw of shadows onto the backdrop which means we can film very close to the greenscreen without ruining the effect by casting a shadow onto the backdrop.

See more about the Chromatte by Reflecmedia here-

This incredible innovation will help us create a higher quality of digital content for a followers, fans and patrons. As well as next level promo material and comedy skits.
