“Nothing is more real than nothing”, Beckett Machine: Based on Beckett’s Krapp’s last tape
About the performance
Old age is not fun. A man who dies. He has his birthday... Or he wants to live. Confrontation with a picture of the younger self.
Beckett looks back at his life. He does not recognize himself and his actions. He tries to correct the mistakes of the past. Is he Beckett?
Oppression, freedom, strict stage instructions set an asphyxiating framework in which Krapp confronts Beckett, the director and the actor.
