Ubu at school: Jarry and American cartoons

2007-2008 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Ubu at school: Jarry and American cartoons - Alfred Jarry
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre – Substage, 15/02/2008

''What does a 19th century classic have in common with Homer Simpson, Amy Sedaris, Stan, Kenny, Cartman and Lisa Kudrow? How is a mythical Polish king connected with a real physics professor? What is the relationship between a teaching room and a battlefield? What is a toilet brush doing in this teaching room? What does a chalk have in common with a bullet and yogurt with a bomb? What's the difference between real death and a death on stage? Could Ubu be secretly in love? Maybe militant? Arduous? Or is he gay? Can a bear achieve more than Hamlet ever did? And finally, why doesn't Ubu ever die?'' Hectoras Lygizos - Katerina Konstantinakou
