The play’s characters meet in a strange space, a museum of the future in which the people working there gradually become the main exhibit. Humankind's deep desire to rest, even for a moment, is something that is difficult to articulate in public. In the museum is a dwelling, a cemetery for the living. The people there are able to study the state of tiredness and mental stagnation they have fallen into. Since fatigue has been an aspect of human life since the dawn of our species, what happened along the way to make it unbearable? Since when has rest seemed futile? What are all those bags carrying? The characters try to answer these questions in order to have, if only for a while, an honest relationship with themselves.
Marilena Katranidou directs a poetic composition for the stage that starts from the ideas of the philosopher Byung-Chul Han about the “fatigue society” and offers a requiem for a modern world that hides its fatigue in a dust-cloud of hyperactivity and productivity. This is a production for tired people everywhere.
