POESIES

ABOUT POESIES

Poesies is based on the collection of texts by Isidore Ducasse (1846-1870) by the name of “Poésies I & II”.

 

“Goodness, Thy name is Man.
The wisdom of nations rests upon this.
There is nothing incomprehensible.”

 

Our theatre’s objective equals that of psychoanalysis: to let a whole range of suppressed human emotions come to expression. Artaud’s Theatre of Cruelty was intended as a means of rediscovering energies within ourselves, endorsing life with a renewed value. Otherwise we might just as well give in, accepting the regrettable verity of Ducasse’s words: ”Man is so great that his greatness is manifest in not accepting the notion that he is miserable”.
