Fair is Matei Vişniec's most recent play in which the world seen as a fair rotates on a mad carousel of phantasms, that contains the obsessions of the modern world, "the house of horrors", identified with the television, and the progressive loss of memory which the author calls "the umbrella type memory", holey, capricious. This type of memory opposes to the "shoe type memory", troubled by "the sufferance of walking"... An absurd world, with characters with absurd names (The woman with a knife imbedded in her left eye, the animal that perfectly resemblances the man, the Head of the president from the Eolian region of the Alps, etc.), in absurd situations. The Fair from our minds, from everybody's minds.
