MYSTERIES & DROLLS

MYSTERIES & DROLLS

We give new life to the European Popular Drama, rediscovering its roots !

M&D intends to launch a co-operation in a EU intercultural dimension, on the forms and languages of Mystery Play, Jester arts, Popular Drama, Drolls and Farce, as real key elements in the strategies for development of Performing Arts and Audience. As proved in the Theatre of Dario Fo, these forms can today give an unique contribution to the strengthening of EU identity of Theatre, which just in the rapport between Sacred and Profane, Popular and Cultured can be adequately fed. The Street Performing Arts represent today the need to reassign the Theatre to the Square, in its ritual dimension, as expression of the “social-man”, as a way to challenge the power (buffoon) and relate to the transcendent (mystery). In this sense, the project will allow to Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Music, to recover their own place in social life, and to give back to Spectator an active role in the show.
