"Danton - We know so little about each other. We are thick-skinned elephants, hands extended, but it is a waste of time, only our roçamos leather against each other - we are very lonely."

"You want to Danton's Death, the enigmatic text of Georg Büchner's deep desire of those who started driving 70 years old shows that in another century, bloody too. Why is the Death of Danton, who throw themselves all questions of the theater after interested in coming, it is the heritage of Shakespeare and his breath is outdated history absorbed.

Ask unbalanced, strange, premonitory, messy, disheveled - in the crowd scenes that succeed the most intimate insomnia, in which history is seen as a nightmare, a piece of black pessimism, is the part of a bloody guy fixing the death. And I have always interested the youthful writings. The young to the young Brecht Sarah Kane, the young Harrower Fosse or the young José Maria Vieira Mendes - I have been consistently found among those who still tune the voice, which has not met the formal balance, they still bleed. EA Death of Danton is the text: the convulsions of history seen by a boy bewildered, anxious, insecure, before death. "
