HOMO SECUNDUS – The revenge of Marx

Homo Secundus is physical theatre with humoristic social conscience. It contains serious criticism of the prevailing conditions as well as seeds for radical thinking.

This work of fiction is set in a troubled suburb, at the cutting edge of the fashion world, in a bird hide, and in collective surreal dreams.

Home Secundus is a wordplay, whose meaning refers either to a new and improved version of Man or, alternatively, to a deficient second-rate citizen. The subtitle Marx’s revenge, on the other hand, recalls Karl Marx’s disavowal of Communism, which he had helped create, and his prediction of the Soviet regime’s ultimate destruction, as well as Marx’s admiration of the United States, and his plan to emigrate there.
