The play

The play takes place in a world where all the power is concentrated in the hands of a mysterious entity: The Industry. The foundations of this system stands on privatisation: of life, of common spaces, of knowledge, of language… In this way, one has to have a licence to talk. The characters of the play gather in a basement to speak freely and we discover the world where they live from their dialogues. The play criticizes the ultra-liberalism and the intellectual property but not only. The play questions also the ideas of bravery and cowardice, solidarity and rebellion.
