(Pic by Bevan Davis: Andrew Buckland in “Mistero Buffo”)

The Pansa KZN - MUSHO festival of one – two person theatre will run at Catalina Theatre from January 11 to 15 with its usual exciting line-up of new productions.

Mistero Buffo (Satire/ physical theatre) takes place on January 13. Written by Nobel-Prize winner Dario Fo (translated by Ed Emery), it is adapted and performed by Andrew Buckland. Buckland brings a wonderful adaptation of Fo’s controversial work, which combines the grotesque comedy of the Italian medieval performance traditions with razor-sharp contemporary satire. The play criticises the repressions of religious institutions and landowning classes throughout history.
Mistero Buffo is performed on January 13 at 20h00. (Duration 60 minutes) Age 16 and up.

All Musho Festival performances are at the Catalina Theatre. Tickets for all shows R50 (R30 PANSA paid-up members as well as OAPS and children under 12). Special R100/day all-day ticket on Saturday and Sunday. Contact Catalina Theatre on 031 305 6889
