The Society for the Destitute Presents Titus Bouffonius by Colleen Murphy
by Colleen Murphy
The difference between the clown and the bouffon is that while the clown is alone, the bouffon is part of a gang; while we make fun of the clown, the bouffon makes fun of us. At the heart of the bouffon is mockery pushed to the point of parody. The parody isn’t directly offensive with regard to the public; there is no deliberate intention to mock. Bouffons come from elsewhere. -Jacques LeCoq
Theatre Network is pleased to welcome
The Society For The Destitute Presents Titus Bouffonius. With their shockingly dark and deranged humour, this award-winning troupe is known to get audiences laughing so hard they lose their minds. “The worst revenge is the best revenge,” in a hilarious and unforgettable adaptation of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus.
Warning: Clowns at work! Grotesque story-telling and many, many bloody body parts used for parody. Not for the faint of heart.
