by Fernando Arrabal

Theatre play
Black-box, Damascus, Syria
Spring 2015
Guernica, a play by Fernando Arrabal inspired by Picasso's painting, depicts a universe founded upon guilt. A nameless officer's stare and the sight of his handcuffs are enough to implicate in guilt those who are helplessly caught in the war's anonymous destruction. Whatever form it may take in Arrabal, authority is synonymous with gratuitous persecution. The absent father, the possessive mother, and the unspecified state all share this feature.
The premiere got canceled. The project has been censored, and the official reason was that the short play does not correspond with Syria's sensitive political and social situation.
