Brnò – Czech Republic
This performance is built around a tradition from medieval times when traveling comedians moved from town to town, bringing news, but also performing theatrical pieces which were sometimes subversive in their content.
A light, funny approach to the subject of spirituality and religion is one layer of presentation, resulting from the text and spoken by actors – clowns. The Actors interpret the four pieces of ‘Mistero Buffo’: 1.The birth of wondering comedian, 2. Resurrection of Lazarus, 3.The Blind and the Lame, 4. Boniface VIII. The Clowns work with spontaneous emotions: here and now, relating to contemporary life and current events.
With the desire to create direct communication, the comedians speak universal language of the Global Babel – Land, where God has mixed all the languages. Czech, English, French, German, Polish… is spoken and translated, or suggested by the audience. The audience are not just consumers of the show.
The actors – clowns turn directly to the audience, in dialogue and invite them on the stage.
