Absurdist, Theatre, Film - Current Season

Language Games


Peculiar Works Project (New York, USA)

Absurdist take on philosophy and language. A present-day student and activist, Sheela joins Ludwig Wittgenstein, Paul Shepard and Walter Benjamin for a spirited game of mahjong. As they play, her energy conjures Joseph Beuys as a mythological hare. Invisible to the players, he interjects cultural incantations, while the players contemplate how language evolved from naming animals to representing them with signs, and how myths serve the human need to imagine. Physical chair-play creates an escalating rhythm as tensions build… As the chair-e-ography builds to a crescendo, Sheela pushes back against male aggression and wins the game.
