Rhinoceros
Eugène Ionesco

Rhinoceros

Nightmare of endured war reality becomes the backbone of this play in which a mysterious infection slowly turns people into rhinoceros. Metamorphosis connecting totalitarian linguistic discourse and primal human animalism becomes thus a powerful image of lost humanity in the invading tide of madness and as such a welcome theatre vaccine against all forms of collective contagions.

An Enemy of the People
Henrik Ibsen

An Enemy of the People

Ibsen uncompromisingly leads his hero beyond the order where democracy represents a mere terror over majority fascinated by their own gain. Doctor Stockmann - because of his insistence to cleanse the actual and moral quagmire of the community – will be declared an enemy of the people. Because “people”–manipulated by local rulers – will stand by a nice and righteous doctor only until they realizethat his discovery could give their town a bad name and empty their pockets.

Six Characters in Search of an Author
Luigi Pirandello

Six Characters in Search of an Author

In this Pirandello’s play the so-called ordinary people interrupt a theatre rehearsal unexpected and uninvited with an unusual request: we want our story to be told on the stage! This rough intrusion into the protected theatre space is no longer a trigger for conversational drama of absurdism as it was at its première, but possible start of a cruel, activist story about theatre occupied by people in a desperate search for any kind of satisfaction. Those six characters, disappointed with political leaders and banking elites, choose theatre as their last resort, however under their terms.
