Cooperation between Vígszínház, the Schauspiel Stuttgart and theatres from Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Norway, Romania and Ukraine. What happened to the dialogue that a united European community once wanted to initiate? The financial and the refugee crises of recent years have shown us the fragility of the European set of values. Common initiatives give place to the idea of nation states with defined territorial borders. The Schengen Agreement cracks. The “Regions of Europe” show their barb-wired faces along the so-called Balkan Route. Brexit is a done deal. AfD became the third strongest political party in Germany, illustrating how right-wing extremists turned from individual phenomena to a real political force all over Europe.
Georges Feydeau is the creator of an insanely happy universe. He is capable of tormenting his audience with three hours of nonstop laughter. A grand engineer of theatrical effects, he accurately observes human games and presents them with gleeful irony. In Free Exchange Hotel men and women frantically chase each other and their desires from one hotel room to the next, losing the meaning of life and their pants on the way. In Feydeau’s comedies, under the brightly polished surface hide the horrors of life, which Jean Cocteau compared to the world of Franz Kafka.
