Dario Fo’s 1997 Nobel Prize-Winning Mistero Buffo
An Exclusive Graduate Center Engagement

Join Stefano Di Pietro, one of Dario Fo’s most prolific students and collaborators, and his theatre company Absurda Comica from Rome for two performances of selections from Dario Fo’s Nobel Prize-winning Mistero Buffo. This work represents the height of Mr. Fo’s unique style of play writing and performance, and has gained popularity for its use of “Grammelot,” a language invented to escape censorship as the show toured throughout Italy and abroad. Stefano Di Pietro and Gianni Pontillo will perform the pieces La fame dello zanni ,Bonifacio VIII ,l’Arlecchino fallotropo ,Grammelot dell’avvocato inglese , and La droga-la scommessa . A discussion will follow each of the performances.

Cosponsored by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center and the Istituto Italiano Di Cultura, New York.
