“Breakfast of Champions”

16 November, Thursday, 21:30

Spectators are left in one room with Kurt Vonnegut’s “Breakfast of Champions” characters. Three characters and three spectators

This performance was inspired by strong, complicated and ironic works of Kurt Vonnegut. Texts that don’t have any borders or limits like a straight plot or unity of time and place. No limits, except flying of furious author’s mind. This performance has only three spectators and three actors. Conversation and dance happen face to face. This is not a theatre in its casual understanding, same way Vonnegut’s texts are not like classic literature works of XIX century. This performance is more an experience which you have with random companions. How it usually happens in life. The main character of the book, Dwayne Hoover, who is a lucky dealer, suddenly loses his mind. The first point of his madness is an idea of all people being robots. And he is the only one person who has an ability to feel, think, live. The irony is that his madness is a result of a failure in a work of biological robot called “Dwayne Hoover”.
