Buffoon Laboratory Intensive Weekend
Fri, July 31, 6-10pm / Sat, August 1, 10am-6pm / Sun, August 2, 2:30-7:30pm
Come discover the darkly comedic and highly physical character performance form of the Buffoon with Lecoq trained Master Teacher, Dody DiSanto Buffoons come from somewhere else. They are connected to the verticality of mystery. They are part of the relationship between heaven and earth, of which they reverse their values. They spit on the heavens and invoke the earth. Buffoons are organized hierarchically, and live in a perfect society without conflict, where each person finds their exact place. They exhibit before us, in an anomalous manner - close to a parade, our proper folly. They play our society and its themes of power, science, religion through organized follies according to precise rules, where the most feeble may be in charge of everyone. The buffoons denounce and at the same time propose a tragic space.
