Hoy Polloy artistic director, Wayne Pearn directs Johan Padan and the Discovery of the Americas by Dario Fo – a monologue presented by Terra Incognita featuring Steve Gome.
Johan Padan and the Discovery of the Americas is an imaginative re-telling of the earliest encounters between the European and the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean, Southern America and Mexico.
Inspired by the historical exploits of the likes of Cabeza de Vaca and Guerriero, the story was conceived as an alternative to the official commemorations of Columbus’ voyages.
Johan Padan is an epic monologue with a cast of thousands teeming with life, action, humour and surprises.
