The Wedding pilaf, 2009

2 male – 2 female

Paris Tacopoulos

The Wedding pilaf (gamopilafo), or waiting for Beta, hommage to Samuel Beckett, a digital neoplatonic theatrical symposium in two acts.   Two “post-modern” men, or post dejà vu, discuss endlessly about present, future and past, like true descendants of Becket’s heros, Vladimir and Estragon, or Socrates and Alcibiades. Their voice being lost in digital channels, between the first beings in the world, and the last robots of our era. A woman, a sort of Xanthipi, (Socrates’ wife) the housewife of the weaker of the two men, unites and separates them until their final end or new beginning. Another woman Beta, makes also a sudden appearance during the play, before the entrance of the housewife and gives them a long lecture like Socrate’s Diotima in the Symposium.
