ANTES DA REFORMA

Vor dem Ruhestand (1979)

A writing of aggravating circumstances. A theater in Europe that reveals obscure backstage, obsessive rehearsals, crushed audiences and arrogant staterooms. Everyone there knows where in the end-of-the-world row they are. A writing that seeks the speech of thought, futile and sharp, torrential and censored. A theater of reckoning and mortal vitality. From the word that allows to continue. From red to neutral. Giant monologues in dwarf bodies. The verb sliced, parched cake where desire is born as mold. A discourse on "humanity" too close to a natural chaos that makes men irresponsible. Walled characters. If the walls spoke, they wouldn't be far from silencing what they shut up.
