“In our country brainwashing is free and obligatory. Every citizen needs to be brainwashed at least twice a year. Those that try to avoid the procedure will be proclaimed as enemies of social harmony.” The texts of Matei Visniec are poignant, cruel and poetic. They show the colourful variety of the most peculiar characters. One of them might perfectly resemble your neighbour, the other the woman we don’t actually know but meet her daily on our way to work… A bunch of grotesque figures come to life in front of our eyes in the minimalistic set, to stare at the absurdities of our society, facing our world and its puzzling inconsistencies.
