Dario fo - mistero buffo - nouvelle scène internationale - The Cockpit


In his introduction, Jenkins, who has translated and written extensively on Fo, reports on the political blackballing of the playwright from all public media, allegedly due to the political intervention of the Vatican. Jenkins also includes excerpts of the 1977 vitriolic argument between Franco Zeffirelli and Fo following the broadcast of Mistero Buffo on Italian public television. The devoutly Catholic Zeffirelli attacked Fo for his de-sanctifying portrayal of the Gospels, and Fo counterattacked by accusing Zeffirelli and the Catholic Church of having sanitized Jesus' revolutionary message and silenced the "pagan, almost Dionysian joy for love, feasting, beauty, and earthly things" (xxxi) found in the popular interpretation of the New Testament. According to Fo, the popular tradition is free-spirited, disrupting the homogenizing attempts of the official history, and is also revolutionary because it places humanity back into the Gospels.

As topical and explosive as it was when Fo first performed it, this new restaging of Mistero Buffo is a daring and timely reminder that sometimes we need to pay attention to the smallest voice and not the most powerful.
