A daring and explosive rallying cry for the disenfranchised, Dario Fo’s Mistero Buffo is considered to be one of the most iconic solo performance pieces. Fo focused on the concept, character and tradition of the Jongleur – the traveling performer, acrobat and comedian of the middle ages. “The Jongleur went from place to place, clowning in squares in pieces which were grotesque attacks on the powerful...a figure from the people, of the people.”
A Rhum and Clay production directed by Nicholas Pitt and starring Julian Spooner, this award-winning update of a classic was a sell-out hit at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Julian Spooner embodies over a hundred characters in a virtuoso performance, centred on the travelling storyteller. However, these versions aren’t like any you’ve heard before. Darkly comic, sometimes tragic and always subversive, Mistero Buffo takes aim at those who manipulate truth and belief for power and control.
