ART

BY

YASMINA REZA

Art, a French play written by Yasmina Reza, adapted in English, by Christopher Hampton, is a play, that revolves around three diverse and minimalist products of human nature. Three characters, aesthetes in their own right, questioning their individual prejudices against each other.

Serge, a modernist, a puritan, but an afterthought of delusion. Marc, characterized by the epitome of self-acclaim and classicist snobbery and Ivan, an oblivious leaf, which flows in whichever direction the wind blows.

The three friends collide subtly into each others’ perspective and push each other into an overwhelmed sense of egoistic urge towards moral self defense, bringing out the extremes of human nature in the most sublime of ways. The simplistic portrayal of a relationship severed at the seams, encompassing Art as its supposed to be, universal and conflicting.

natural players , differential lighting and apt music makes art a worth while watch .( all this plus a not so creative tribute to Micheal jackson)
