the cost of life

The narrator is sitting in the audience seats

while the spectators are above the stage.

Laius is hanging over the ground in a power position

and at the same time is under interrogation,

while Oedipus and Jocasta are nailed on the floor

as slaves of his decisions.

The three of them form a recycled triangle

as each gradually passes by the position of the other.

The play acts as a narration and revival of what happened.

A loud sound is heard and the game begins with a run

in an attempt to kill each other in the context of a child game,

until they lie exhausted on the floor.
