“The performers entered so truthfully into their characters and related

so lovingly with the spectators, we had no choice, but be engaged

and to engage in wonder. Dzieci is not simply a troupe of performers but

a community seeking together a profound relationship with the Spiritual.” ~ Rex Deverell, Minister Emeritus, Calvary Baptist Church, Toronto ~


In Dzieci’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.
