Davant la jubilació

A key text by the playwright Thomas Bernhard based on true events. Fascism, revisited by Krystian Lupa. Extremely topical. Implacable.

Barcelona Crític's Prices 2016 to the Best Show, Best Prime Actress to Marta Angelat and Best Sound Space to Roger Ábalos.


Bernhard's portrait of a family poisoned by Nazism; a wide range of symptoms, a sick and crippled humanity.
It is no longer an ideology, or a historic monster, but instead a spiritual disease of mankind.
All human feelings, values and aspirations are infected by this virus.
It is no longer a lack of morality, the amputation of goodness, but instead of sick and crippled morality, falsified goodness.
The profound illness of contemporary man, which creates disabled individuals according to Thomas Bernhard's diagnosis.
Brothers affected by the virus of the modern mutation of Nazism, cloistered in a falsified family existence, in a confined and suffocating prison that they themselves have created and which they guard, which exudes hatred, fear and the impossibility of being happy.
