Elogio del disagio (Uneasiness Eulogy) is a wrecked vaudeville, un absurd and metaphorical variety show. It is the third and last part of the Dukkha project, a research process based on the theme of sufference and its origins. The theme is faced with irony and lightness: “nothing is more comic than unhappiness” is Beckett’s teaching, the main source of inspiration for this work. Two characters relate with a space with a space governed by a system of rules and orders coming from a voice-over. Obeying those orders, they become architects of their own game. Two bodies, many objects and a mechanism destroyed by repetition. The relationship between orders and executions becomes more and more absurd and ridiculous. The end is certain, inevitable. Perhaps, after all, it is not that terrible.
