Arabic /  German /  English /  French /  6pm-11pm

Two humans play being apes that play being apes that play being humans for humans. They get out of hand and control themselves, straightening each other out. They zealously learn know-hows and don’t-know-hows. Consul and Meshie represent hybrid characters that question the violence of assignments. They whirl on the edge of the categories nature/culture, man/woman, the self and the other.
