Free use of words and actions by Karl Kraus, Robert Musil, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
Out of the depths of Bohemia’s concave land and the “middle” Europe which coined the term “world war” and started the century of global destruction comes the most extraordinary theatrical revolution that the world has known since Attic society.
Strong in Jarry’s teaching, a line-up of theatrical writers, literati, poets and thinkers deviate the impulses of society – a restless, hazy, sombre, absurd society – towards the most ridiculously atrocious reflection on humanity’s tragic contemporary state.
Man finds himself facing a destiny beyond his control, without any insolent albeit comforting Gods to pray to; all he can cling to is the sneer of other unknown faceless men.
They are the owners of the machines, weapons, words guiding the masses, torturing with the beauty of blood; they are those who dwell in Castles with no way out, those who decide who shall be in the trenches, those with whistles hanging round their necks.
