God's Fool
Martha Clarke

The Ellen Stewart Theatre at La MaMa
66 East 4th Street
New York, NY 10003
Between 2nd Avenue and Bowery.


The iconoclastic creator of the form-changing multidisciplinary works The Garden of Earthly Delights and Vienna: Lusthaus returns with this new full-length work. Conceived and directed by Martha Clarke, with text by poet Fanny Howe, God’s Fool interprets the ancient story of St. Francis of Assisi: a man of privilege who chose community over self and lived among the poor, lepers, and others disenfranchised by society. An a cappella score, derived from music spanning a period of 800 years, is incorporated into an impressionistic narrative. St. Francis of Assisi’s humility and profound connection to nature, animals, and simplicity, is relevant in the chaotic time we are experiencing.
