“The beauty of the theatre is that it is a safe space, and this is why it must always be as dangerous as possible. It is the one place where evil may be enacted and thus purged without harming a soul, because its transgressions are make-believe and symbolic. The high may be made low; the low may be made high. The ugly may be made beautiful; the beautiful ugly. Like death, it is the great leveler. Ultimately, I think a partial answer to the question “What is bouffon?” is that, whatever it is, it is not a noun, but a verb. Bouffon must be witnessed first hand.”
– Trav S.D.
