the figure stirring  veiled by camera and  net puts  Venus Aprodite rising

the sea    back of her mind

holding its mind dada brushes the gypsy

burnishing the unexpected rough cap of glacier  backwater

 wisdom it's drop of favorite expectations vanishing

holding its mind dada brushes the gypsy

burnishing the unexpected rough cap of

the rising tide the ancient proverb held by the situating metaphor

hovering at the brink wonder at its fearless

The opening night of December 11,1896, caused quite a stir according to Roger Shattuck in his work The Banquet Years. Actor Firmin Gernier stepped forward to speak the opening line — “Merdre!” (translated as “Shifter!”). The audience erupted in pandemonium. It took nearly fifteen minutes to silence



_ minutes to silence the house and continue the play. Several people walked out without hearing any more. Fist fights broke out in the orchestra. Jarry supporters shouted, “You wouldn’t understand Shakespeare either!” 

stage manager startled the audience into silence by turning up the house lights and catching several screaming patrons standing on their seats and shaking their upraised fists. Gernier improvised a dance and the audience settled back down long enough for the action to proceed to the next “merdre,” when the audience exploded once again. 



The interruptions continued throughout the play until the curtain fell. One audience member, a stunned and saddened William Butler Yeats, remarked “[W]hat more is possible? After us the Savage God.”_____por old yeats!_________________________

   A rtaud the master of the body without organs saw it !
and loved it naturally
as any kind would 

Artaud directed a version of it   ------------if not  Nope he and another friend ran a theatre

  with Roger Vitrac
'''''“Between real life and the life of dreams there exists a certain interplay of mental associations, relationships between gestures or events that can be translated into actions, which constitute precisely that theatrical reality which the Alfred-Jarry-Theater has undertaken to revive. The sense of the true reality of the theater has been lost. The notion of theater has been erased from the human brain. And yet it still exists, halfway between reality and dreams.”
