Throughout the past decade, Dario Fo, Italy's best known satirical playwright, and his wife Franca Rame, the actress and feminist, conducted a series of performance-seminars around the world on the subject of acting. Fo and Rame have revealed to audiences the many facets of the actor's art - his and her 'Tricks of the Trade'. Tracing the life of the comic performer back to the itinerant jongleur and the skilful improvisations of later commedia dell' arte troupes, Fo's genius as both a player and synthesiser of the historical past allows him to resurrect before our eyes and ears a shadow performer upon whom all actors unwittingly base their work. Using mime, masks, pieces of text, dance, action and snatches from songs, Fo and Franca Rame consolidate many months of their lecture demonstrations into a 'Six Day' workshop that is also a Fo-on-Fo one-man show.
