From the novels, The Good Soldier Švejk by Jaroslav Hašek and The Last Days of Mankind by Karl Kraus, the great scene magician Robert Wilson presents a musical cabaret made of dreamlike scenes tinted with humour. The narrators Optimiste and Pessimisme, looking like Laurel and Hardy, take us into a burlesque and dark world, in black and white.
