LE CŒUR À GAZ (THE GAS HEART)
By Tristan Tzara (FR)
6 characters – variable cast size and gender distribution
French original text, Danish translation
Eye, mouth, nose, ear, neck and eyebrow are the characters in THE GAS HEART – LE CŒUR À GAZ – a famous and infamous text by Dadaist Tristan Tzara, written in 1921, between two world wars. An absurd parody of the theatrical conventions and a revolt against the hypocritical facade of civil society – a meaningless entry into a world without meaning.
