Progressive Dramaturgy Theatre
Season 49: The End of Illusions


(Czech) „Naše zahlazení bude stejně dokonalé.“

We have to be perfect. Precise. In time. With nothing more. We mustn´t wait for anything. We have to be efficient – and perfect. Immediately of course. (Why is there so little time for everything?) However, our happiness is a bit paradoxical. Framed by the spirit of the Holy Trinity, which is a mark, wrapping and right publicity. For image, activity and unrelenting satisfaction. One of this period´s phenomenon told with a detached view, humour and bitter irony. The original play by the original playwright S.d.Ch. presents grotesque-mysterious commentary on our remarkable presence where perfection is represented by a woman. A woman whose life takes place in a horizontal position. The frame of the scenic essay is completed with Mario Buzzi´s songs that are based on prompt reflections of the philosopher and sociologist Gilles Lipovetsky.

S. d. Ch. (1970)
Writer. Playwright. Puppeteer. Author of radio plays and the collage cartoon Varlen. Lyricist, composer, guitarist and front man of the band called Ruce naší Dory (Our Dora´s Hands). In his own words he is the author with optics set in a certain strangely esoteric-civilistic and absolutistic mode. He layers his commentaries on artistic, intellectual and spiritual states of the world in all creative forms. He has received two Alfred Radok Prizes for original theatre plays, 2012 (Still life in Slovan) and 2013 (Spiritual death in Venezia).
