Sanctus Fumigagi: Collected Works, Volume 2: Shorts Plays, Volume 2
Todd Bash is among the most adventurous and uncompromising playwrights in the world today. Often shattering the conventions of traditional theatre, and overflowing with dream-like imagery, his style recalls the experiments of the Paris Surrealists during the 1920s, as well as writers such as Alfred Jarry, Bertolt Brecht and Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz. SANCTUS FUMIGACI - Collected Works Volume 2 brings together eight of Bash's most challenging plays, spanning the years 1989 through 2005. Provocative, haunting and deeply personal, they are necessary reading for anyone with a serious interest in contemporary theatre, the avant-garde and surrealism. QUOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: "As a writer, I attempt to delve beyond external reality, and touch something deep within myself. I want to express a human being's inner reality in a completely honest and uninhibited manor, with all of its brutality, and all of its innocence; all of its darkness, and all of its beauty. To create an analogy, a couple of years ago I spent some time in the Amazon jungle. I found the jungle, and Nature itself, completely free. At times its chaos was overwhelming, filled with a violent ferocity. But it was also pure, almost innocent, and incredibly moving. This is how I view the imagination, as well, and what I strive to capture with my writing and creative projects."
