WORDS LIKE OEDIPUS I
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.
