Art: Theatre

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 question their individual prejudices against each other. Serge is a modernist and a puritan while Marc is the epitome of self-acclaim and classicist snobbery. As for Ivan, he is an oblivious leaf, flowing 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 defence, bringing out the extremes of human nature in the most sublime of ways. The simplistic portrayal of a relationship coming apart at the seams, encompassing Art as it is supposed to be, universal and conflicting.
