A modern clown entertains his audience by performing a provocative Comical Mystery. Following the example of Jesus Christ, he redefines the notion of authority by giving a human dimension to the concept of miracles.
Acclaimed Greek actor Panos Vlahos will perform this new adaptation of Dario Fo’s Mistero Buffo for the first time in Los Angeles. The performances will be held at Complex Theatres’ Flight Theatre, as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival!
A Live Performance Where Laughter becomes the Miracle
This production is a theatrical exploration of the Last Supper hosted by a clown, the Guilare. The performance is crafted around three main questions that the Guillare eagerly asks his guests: who am I? who are you? who is in charge? Through spanning monologues, soliloquies, storytelling, dialogues and crowd scenes, the Guilare shares his revolutionary message and redefines the notion of order and power. The protagonist of this comical mystery finds his roots in the medieval jugglers and commedia dell’ arte, and as a genuine fool, voices subversive preaching with a chuckle! Actor Panos Vlahos uses his technical ease to perform a number of different characters as a fool, a player, a peasant, soldiers, villagers, the Pope and Jesus Christ in a one-hour theological and political statement.
