Overstepping the limits of freedom.
Co-author Peter Brajerčík enters the underworld of disinformation in a monodrama inspired by Umberto Eco. The modern-day thug at the centre of his play is a reflection of contemporary European reality. He bends the truth as he likes, but his brisk sense of humour rouses our sympathy. After all, he knows all too well what Germans, Americans and even Slovaks are like. Even when he is wrong, it is easy to take him at his word. That is why he can now contort and fob off his half-truths, somewhere on the margins of society.
This production, which was staged at the Prešov National Theatre under the guidance of director Júlia Rázusová and earned the Grand Prix at the New Drama festival 2019, keenly demonstrates that manipulation truly is easy. Especially when society is prone to believe in fake news, hoaxes and conspiracy theories, only in order to confirm their own antisemitism, nationalism and antisystemic sentiments. But Moral Insanity is about more than just a high-quality script, humour and a theme that surpasses geographical boundaries. The actor’s performance is made no easier by the choice to involve obstacles, which add dynamism to the play and aptly underscore its message.
This production was co-selected by the Spectator Programme Board of the Be SpectACTive! Project.
