In a pandemic world, only laughter can save us all. Mistero Fo(nic) is a chameleonic romp through reimagined Bible tales.
The Pandemic, the performers’ hardship and the need for good storytelling bring forth this adaptation from Dario Fo’s Comic Mysteries. Mistero Fo(nic) is a live Melbournian radio program in the middle of Pandemical times. It recaptures Jesus Christ’s Mysteries (told from Fo’s genius perspective) and transforms them into an experience driven by voices and soundscapes as used in the glorious times of Radio Theatre.
