The Imaginists Theatre Collective's Project 104 presents the Mother of all Modern Theater extravagonzos: UBU REX. First performed in 1896 in a show that was nearly shut down by astonished and outraged audiences, this French travesty of Macbeth excavates the babyish substrates of politics and society. Princes dine on toilet brushes, scream for blood, command vast armies--and run in terror at the fart of a gnat. UBU, like a mirror of truth, stands in exact opposition to the politics of today: everybody says exactly what they mean and shows exactly what's on the end of their fork. The language is rough and exhilarating. The action is as brisk and passionate as a roll in the hay. And after the laughter, the audience nods and sighs. Read the papers: we are living UBU!
