Closing ceremony of the Ohrid Summer Festival 2020; God of Carnage By Yasmina Reza; Directed by: Bilge Emin
70 years jubilee of NI Turkish theatre, Skopje
NI TURKISH THEATRE, Skopje
The play starts with the thought “Regardless of everything, there is something called the art of cohabitation”, but as the play progresses the vital life values such as marriage, children, profession, social state etc. are questioned. During these analyses it is obvious that violence exists within us and savage brutality is part of human nature. During the dramatic development, the audience faced with a multitude of questions: is this brutality something that we are born with or is it something we learn, do we manage the marriage or the marriage as an institution governs us…The ego leads the man to extinction. No matter how hard the individual tries to exit from the system, the system attracts him back in. You can’t fight the system. The moment you resist your “God of carnage” it will be destroyed by his God of carnage. Is it important to keep in line with the system or not. Is the solution to the problem important? Everything is decided for and chosen by the individual.
