Ours is a time in which the words liberty, fraternity and equality have become infused with foreboding and in which the bounds of their meaning has become transient, constantly shifting as they are bent to accommodate increasingly diverse interpretations. Putting his trust in the intuition and modernity of Georg Büchner’s great work, Aleksandar Popovski, the young Macedonian theatre director leading this truly international production, re-explores these concepts and the meanings of the words which are part of the precious legacy of the French revolution and the foundation upon which all western democracies are built. The cast re-unites some of Italy’s best young actors, bringing them together to portray all the inherent contradictions embodied in these words and raise pressing questions concerning events currently unfolding in the world today: who are those acting in the name of liberty? Who is pointing the trigger and who is being shot at? How can it be that an idea as magnificent as equality has become the most violent in the world? Is it really true that we are all born different?
