About the performance
Scapin. Scappino. Escaper. An escape artist. An artist's escape. There is someone who can get rid of the strained situations, so at any time, might save us the trouble. Who is he? A puppet, a donor, a servant, who descends into our inner hell, to get dirty in our grime and clean us. Why he does it? For money? He is able to pull out millions of the simple-minded giant lord, but he doesn't keep anything for himself. He is awesome, because he is indecipherable. He is horrible, because, in trouble he is indispensable. It is scandalous that we need him. We're at his mercy, because we are cowards, ignorant and liars. We need someone to see through the tangle of truth and know all our secrets. We need someone with whom we can be honest, who unconsciously holding up a mirror to us, who can help you spin own ugliness. But what we do with that excellent spirit, when everything's finally fine? We are debtors and we cannot pay, because although everything he did is a fraud, all his words are lies, actually, he is not bribable. Let's get rid of him?
