The bright, pure colors of a superficially civilised world blend into the sordid grey and stringy mass of corruption. Ubu Ru is a journey of greed and power in a grotesque kindergarten which the children have outgrown and where toys kill.
Ubu cheerfully chops off heads for his own amusement as a soft terror sets in.
We laugh as he impales his friends.
Yet, the machines that maintain his power are paltry: he massacres the world by picking his teeth.
In a naive universe populated by demons of the absurd, logic may be reversed, but the acquisition of power remains the driving force.
This spectacular event, full of energy and disorder, is inspired by the texts of Alfred Jarry and the pictorial world of Joan Mirò.
