Every profound spirit needs a mask: Even if the complex game of identities that is played in Cuadro Segundo, in which the alter egos of the two protagonists exchange masks in order to define themselves and their relation, will be analyzed later through the lens of performative theories, it is worth to consider here the transfiguration that always culminates this interaction: Europe and our civilization are in crisis.

The verses that he recovers are, in this sense, highly significant: They can be anything, so they can be two men. Artaud concludes that European drive for annihilation cannot be dissociated with its civilization: In other words, cruelty and its theatre constitute a sort of shock therapy; maybe contemporary readers will follow this peeste better: O Teatro e a Peste: In the lla, they are merely metaphors with which we dress an object – of desire, of knowledge – that can never be grasped in its naked reality.

I have already mentioned how aesthetic fiction is proposed as a solution to overturn real-life illusions: Such acts, gestures, enactments, generally construed, are performative in the sense that the essence or identity that they otherwise purport to express are fabrications manufactured and sustained through corporeal signs and tdatro discursive means.

Generic names are used in order to emphasize the non-specificity of the characters, who appear as universal, but also to posit the relation of the lovers as contingent: Penguin Books, Classics, Romeo and Juliet can be represented or, more exactly, replaced by any object in a metaphorical operation.

O Teatro de Seraphin: Debe ser una actriz. This points directly to what will be my next topic to analyze: The script always refers to the protagonist as Stage Director, though his proper name, Enrique, is mentioned a few times, This might be true, but precisely my hypothesis was that it is not possible to live without appearances, whether we decide to call them masks pestw metaphors.
