_“I didn’t cover up my ears. Everyone covered theirs up and I alone didn’t cover mine and therefore I alone heard everything. Similarly, I didn’t blindfold myself with a rag, as everyone else did, and therefore I saw everything. Yes, I alone saw and heard everything. But unfortunately, I didn’t understand anything and, therefore, what was the value of me alone seeing and hearing everything?” – Daniil Charms
The play tells the story of a writer trying to survive in the preposterous and absurd reality. The protagonist fights against the nonsense of life with the only available weapon – his imagination. Imagination turns the performance’s engine on. Logic and rationality dissolve in the theatricality of the play. Violence and cruelty prevail in the background of the performance. However, all characters openly play on stage, because if they did not play, they would die. And for the viewer, the efforts of the characters turn into scary and funny scenes, something reminiscent of their very being.
Performed in Lithuanian with English subtitles.
