Filled to the brim: in other words: complete: this triple,
three-fold hermetic Shakespeare play: Romeo and Juliet of Géza Szőcs, of
László-Károly Vadas and last but not least of Figura. Three visions in one
single scope with the due respect and eternal gratefulness to the great
scope-builders (Szőcs Shakespeare as well as Shakespeare Szőcs). On the poster
too it should be lettered like the name of the immortal Jean-Paul Sartre: with
a hyphen. Furthermore:
3 Romeo and Juliets, all in one and one by one, one by one (1-1-1)
and all in one (3), complete holy trinity, synthetic analytics,
induction-deduction, conclusion, therefore beginning, here is the completion of
human existence, Struggle, Love, being, the entirety of Mars, Venus, the whole
of Szőcs, the complete Vadas, the full Figura and the entire world: which is of
course theatre. All in this mega-simulator, in this actor’s make-believe-room,
this World seemingly so bright, in this it evolves (starting from its head)
from Eve this hero of passions so hot, the Ur-Hero, us, all of us, the mythical
us-them-they, so many.
Of course the Ancients wouldn’t be Heroes without having to
struggle against certain worrisome Barriers that stopped them dead in their tracks
on numerous occasions for a few seconds on their world conquering journey.
But the hero always defeats the horrid beasts and saddling the
magical dragon doesn’t stop until he reaches the Picturesque Castle of the
Imagination. Once there all of the masks fall into their rightful place? That
which is above, will now be below, that which was first will now be the last,
beggar from kings, kings from beggars. This is the scenario of every optimistic
apocalypse because even the positive Last Judgment has an invisible, but
inferred, i.e.: readable script.
According to valid sources just delivered to us this whole
scribbling that was submitted under the name of Sex-speare, this wole
Romeo-Hamlet-Othello-Ophelia fairy tale, wasn’t even written by Shakespeare, but
by… Géza Szőcs, or rather… Thomas More. Or: let’s get everything out under the
sun: More himself was Szőcs, so he is to blame for the entirety of
theatre… According to some Szőcs is none other than comte de Saint-Germain, the
Immortal… Other believe that this Immortal is Vadas who on the turn of the
millennium chose Gyergyószentmiklós as his residence.
I myself believe that as of now Figura is the most professional non-profession troupe of this wide Transylvania, that Károly László Vadas is the most promising living-classic of theatre direction and that Géza Szőcs is the most-living classic ever.
