Life and death, the surviving between life and death and, more important, the need for the "other" during this survival represent the main themes of this cabaret-performance, based on The Insect Play written by Karel and Josef Čapek. The original play, a "harsh faerie", but also a comedy, is a moral and social allegory. The production emphasizes only secondarily this aspect, as it intents to re-present the obsession for the other - the searching, the keeping, the loosing of the other, the ineffable need for the other, during the surviving. The cabaret like structure of the performance follows the original play's intentions: on one hand, through the distancing, on the other, through putting together paradoxes (real/unreal, faerie/tragedy). The only human character of the original play, The Tramp, becomes, in this performance, the cabaret's Master of Ceremonies, who invites the characters on stage, to tell their stories, until he himself will enter in the tragic-comical story of life's evanescence. And enter the story of meeting the "other".
