In Be My Guest there is only one body on stage and nothing else, no objects, no music, no change of costumes. There are six characters, the author’s guests, looking for the perfect show that can meet their desires, that can accomplish all of their dreams.
Now, there on the stage, the arrival of all the other guests, the pushes of the creation inside the author that materialise themselves in six different roles or masks; each with their own physicality, voice, gestures, motivations and contents.
Inside this absurd and meta-theatrical situation, where the fourth wall is knocked down and rebuilt several times, this tourbillon of characters and archetypes let us enter in the story and in the world of the author. The author, never seen but behind everything, using the weaknesses, and vulnerabilities of the characters will tell the story and will perform a cathartic ritual, with and in front, of the audience.
The audience, also full of guests and always involved since nothing is private, plays, takes part in the process, creates and changes, their presence is a fundamental component of the show. They’re progressively more and more involved in this absurd meta-theatrical adventure that ends in a cathartic and shared collective ritual.
