Product Description

Review

"'A scintillating compendium, erudite and refreshing...' Observer * '...an angular, uncomfortable, disquieting aid inspirational account of an art in which there are no more universal performers and recorders than Dario Fo and Franca Rame' Independent * 'Fo's work is brimful with dialect, with harsh humour, with the wit of the bar-room racounteur...' Guardian"

had to write an essay (3000 words) on one Fo's plays, this book and a lot of great information and therefore if you need it for academic reasons i completely reccomend it - it's great.

if you want it just to read; there are some parts that are a bit wordy but majoritably interesting so i reccomend it in that sense also.

all in all, good book, love Fo!!

HASH(0x9b70cb04) out of 5 stars A freeing work from a brilliant actor/scholar. 16 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this book Dario Fo articulates the relationship between actor and audience in a way only someone who has accepted the physical and mental demands of the acting craft can do. Fo demonstrates he is one part actor, one part scholar, and one part inspired artist. Each page illustrates the line between how an actor acts and their audience cannot be separated from themselves, their society, or from the history of the craft. If nothing else, Fo's joy in performance helps explain why actors remain central to entertainment and to society.
