play paradise



The train from the West passes quickly and doesn't even stop, it has no way to stop, it runs over everyone following its blind flow. It's progress. Energy comes from profit, it comes from the model of civilization based on capitalism. Profit is the life sucked out of people and nations that sink amid toxic waste. Thomas Köck's text admits the absurdity of theater in face of life, making use of different possibilities of structuring the writing for the scene, the author goes from the lyrical to the dramatic and the epic, to tell stories crossed by trains. Irony runs through the scenic language, revealing the critical sediment that the text brings in relation to the western civilizing path.
