A clowning performance which lays bare the absurdity and cruelty of war.

To begin with, a melodrama pits a band of powerless actors against the absurdity of war.
Next, an army of clumsy and naive clowns is overwhelmed by cruelty and tips over into violence and bloodshed. Their physical commitment is total.
Two contradictory human impulses which are reconciled in the ending.
In this striking fresco, the music of Gustav Mahler plays an important role in guiding the audience’s imagination.
