Mistero Buffo With Panos Vlahos

This performance, crafted as a journey through the life of a Giullare spanning monologues, soliloquies, storytelling, dialogues and crowd scenes, and redefining 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 statement. Performed in a church Triantafyllidou and Vlahos subvert the politics of philosophy in a contested public space that both sensors and provides context to political discourse.

“Our Mistero Buffo is a social interpretation of the Passion Stories, from the point of view of the Guillare, a clown that explores and reconstructs the meaning of Miracles!” says director Lyto Triantafyllidou.
