1, 2 July 2011. Directed by Eimuntas Nekrosius. In this play focusing on the Roman emperor Caligula, Camus explores the absolutism of power and the catastrophe of tyranny. He contrasts individual insanity and collective insanity and finally reveals that societal evil is far more dangerous than individual evil.
It sounds like perfect subject matter for the award-winning Lithuanian director Eimuntas Nekrosius, who is known for the utmost emotional intensity of his shows, the use of visual metaphors, which emerge from use of primal materials like fire, ice, water and iron, for his recorded soundtracks
