About this title
The Italian actor, comedian, painter, and playwright Dario Fo is celebrated throughout Europe as a major figure in twentieth-century theater. Yet the Nobel Prize-winner's genius has never been manifested in a significant publication—until now.
A profile on Fo and his longtime partner and collaborator Franca Rame, written by Ron Jenkins, traces among many things, his unusual visual method of creating plays. These remarkable drawings, complemented by photographs that demonstrate Fo's unique physicality and elasticity, together constitute the principal visual elements of Artful Laughter which also includes excerpts from many of Dario Fo's plays.
Dario Fo, Italy's leading contemporary performer. playwright, and director, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1997. His works have been translated and performed throughout the world.
Ron Jenkins is now the new director of Wesleyan's theater program. He holds a doctorate from Harvard and a Master's of Buffonery from the Ringling Brothere College for Clowns.
