What if a cockroach woke up as a human being? That's the topic of Polas latest.

Pola was involved in a role as Kafka's 'superEgo'. 1 Week of rehersals & 6 shows. That's a punishing schedule but they pulled it off well-- the three of them (Pola, Antoine & Christian) really bonded to represent Kafka's three personalities: the man, the cockroach & the amused all-knowing observer.

The element of the show that really got me, however had nothing to do with the story, or with Pola. It was a set / performance piece in a toilet the audience walked through as part of their promenade from scene to scene in the theatre (the audience actually changed its location from set to set within the theatre, at various times crowding around the stage, getting on the stage, going backstage, going through the actor's toilets, going through the cafe and winding up back at the stage.) The toilet was made to look like a bedroom, with all sorts of crap scattered everywhere. An actor in a face mask & bunny ears moved a collapsed ironing board back & forth (as though ironing). The Ironing board was connected, via several bits of transparent fishing line to different objects in the room making them dance: an umbrella opening & closing, a shoe tapping, a mirror changing angle, etc.. The effect was marvellously random & absurd. And I totally identified with it. That was me, in the rabbit ears, at work, making a big to do (and being paid for it) over a ridiculous premise. It encapsulated the absurdity and jacked up uselessness of corporate work. Kafka was a clerk. So are most of us. OUCH!!!

Went for dinner with mom afterwards. Marcia, in her usual blithe, good spirited way crashed the party. Zac showed up as well. Discussed the play & my new website.
