At first everything seemed obvious.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith who in their apartment and their marriage have seven silver platters they received as a gift for their wedding which they never used for anything, host Mr. and Mrs. Martin, who despite the fact they live in the same apartment and sleep in the same bed, do not remember from where they know each other, or when and where they met.

The Fire Chief in search of fires in suburban apartments , ruined and emptied relationships, pointless and absurd conversations, words without meaning and mechanical lives, and unreachable messages of experimental fables.
Mary, the maid makes obvious things seem weird, deducing them in the kitchen mirror.
The ticking clock consumes, but does not indicate the time which like a ball of wool wraps its gears.

Ionesco.

Antidrama.

Theatre of the Absurd.

And then within the antidrama the drama began to appear gradually, not only of characters, relationships, language, but also sense and nonsense, absurdity and its existence.
Within the emptied and depersonalized characters, the pulsating tissue is deconstructed, unmasked, emptied and deprived of sense, leaving them without counterparts, but too much reference points and distinctive sounds.
