Translated by Rita Hudáky 

 

If the world is full of gibberish, so should be the theatre. A post-truth world needs post-truth theatre. Not to understand, to feel (from the stomach). No story, no narrative arc? Why not like to live a life with an arc. Politicians, politicians, politicians!


Wolfram Lotz is one of the most important contemporary German playwrights. His post-dramatic text, Politicians, is a race of associations: a rhythmic repetition of words and fragments of sentences, sometimes hypnotic, sometimes humorous, sometimes suddenly turning into a tragic sordid turn of events.
Incredible gibberish? Noise? A dramatic and entertaining textual monster about the inflation of language, the loss of meaning, the truth lost in a sea of words
in the loss of meaning.
