SOME MESSAGES TO THE UNIVERSE – 25. 2. / 21:00 / STUDIO HRDINŮ

25. 2. / 21.00 / STUDIO HRDINŮ

WOLFRAM LOTZ, JAN HORÁK, MICHAL PĚCHOUČEK 

Wolfram Lotz’s play asks the basic questions of the meaning of life and the desire of leaving some mark in the world. In the Beckett style time and space continuum there is a heterogeneous group of characters who send their messages to the universum in the deep Universe.
In Jan Horak and Michal Pechoucek’s direction the Lotz’s text is edited and it changes into an internal conflict of a sole character whose presence on the stage is only anticipated. The viewers’ focus is on the illusive style of the character’s world and the theatre play itself. The dramatic character is at stake as the story goes and there are characters appearing and then disappearing as if in the dream. Is it possible to escape the archetypal clash of the good and the evil? Or is it possible to anonymously deny the definiteness of human despair which is the main varied theme in this play? There is feminine and therefore intensified view of pain and desire in this play. Human or more specifically “her” life is a tragicomic and shy attempt without any backing. The dimension greater than the human shapes into a mythical but vulgar host of a TV show. Everything including the birth and death, the beginning and end of the play, is trivialized in the play. Everything is a memory and it is very entangled. It is a memory of a possible quality of the human existence, of the beginning and end of a story.
