The stage space does not necessarily serve to set a limit that would strictly distinguish fiction from life. The same is true of this composition inhabited by mad, sudden, recurrent, tragic spirits, as true as they are inside us, but manifested on stage. Thus impulses, encounters, memories and exhortations are opposed in a knot of forces to the absurd, the oblivion and the silence of the end.
