Endgame

Cuban artist Tania Bruguera directs Beckett’s play Endgame. Everyday language is shattered into pieces in this play where the relationship between the dominator and the dominated repeat and vary endlessly. Tania Bruguera transposes the characters’ power-play to the scenography itself: the audience is placed inside an immense cylinder, looking down into it. The piece reminds us how we can control the servant and the dictator inside each of us.
