Comic Mysteries (Mistero Buffo)
Dario Fo's Comic Mysteries (Mistero Buffo) at Emory College
is a masterpiece of physical comedy by the popular but often controversial Dario Fo. This playwright, actor and director has earned international acclaim for his political satires and farces, including Mistero Buffo: The Comic Mysteries
. This pointed comedy confronts contemporary attitudes about spirituality and politics with biting humor and heart wrenching tragedy. It is a series of one-act plays built around the concept of a traveling theater troupe like those of medieval times, that would visit villages and small towns across the land, entertaining the citizens with plays that often contained subversive political content. In this presentation from Arts at Emory, students and professional actors present Fo's comic tales in a lively street theater style.
