Ionesco’s Rhinoceros to Be Staged Here
Ulaanbaatar, March 26 (MONTSAME) Celebrating the World Theater Day (March 27), the Black Box theater is planning to stage Rhinoceros by Eugene Ionesco this Thursday.
S.Myagmar is working for staging and setting of the play, together with young actors of the theater to present the well-known play to the Mongolian audience for the first time. Rhinoceros is the fourth play to be stage by Black Box Theater since its founding four months ago.
The play was translated into Mongolian by B.Tsatsral.
Eugene Ionesco (1909 –1994) was a Romanian playwright who wrote mostly in French, and one of the foremost figures of the French Avant-garde theatre. Beyond ridiculing the most banal situations, Ionesco's plays depict in a tangible way the solitude and insignificance of human existence.
Rhinoceros, written in 1959, belongs to the school of drama known as the Theatre of Absurd. Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses; ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, Berenger, a flustered everyman figure who is criticized throughout the play for his drinking and tardiness. The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Communism, Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, mass movements, philosophy and morality.
