Dzieci Theatre’s FOOLS MASS at Sure We Can
Dec 19, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $10
In Dzieci Theatre’s living example of Holy Theatre, a group of medieval village idiots are forced to enact their own Mass, due to the untimely death of their beloved pastor. Bursting with buffoonery and comic audience participation, Fools Mass is balanced with lovely hymns and chants from the 8th to the 14th centuries, creating a seminal work that has been Dzieci’s signature piece since 1998. Dzieci will be bringing Fools Mass to Sure We Can as part of their final weekend of the season. Join us for a night of song and story in an uncommon space.

Dzieci (djyeh-chee) is an international experimental theatre ensemble dedicated to a search for the “sacred” through the medium of theatre. From teachings imparted by such theatre masters as Jerzy Grotowski and the Polish Theatre Laboratory, Eugenio Barba, Peter Brook, ritual forms derived from Native American and Eastern spiritual disciplines, and an ethic based securely in Humanistic Psychology, Dzieci aims to create a theatre that is as equally engaged with personal transformation as it is with public presentation.
