Tango
(Mro?ek Stanis?aw)

Publicidade
Stanis?aw Mro?ek presents in his drama the grotesque vision of the world, full of buffoonery, exaggeration, caricatural forms. Events shown in this work make up the picture thanks to which we can find "Tango" as a black comedy. There was a family. The seniors: Eugenius and Eugenia, parents: Stomil and Eleonora, their son Arthur and his fiance Ala (she was also his cousin). The family is a little bit strange: the grandparents acts teenagers, the parents protest against any conventions: clothes, behavior, morality - they just behave like "anti-parents". In this whole mess only Arthur wants the world to be organized. He revolts against innovative ideas of his parents, he can't stand their "youthfulness" and lack of principles. Arthur wants an order, he appeals to the tradition of old forms, wants to arrange the bourgeois wedding, wears elegant suits and observes the proprieties. So we also have the typical generation gap: son against parents - but totally reverse, because the parents represent "crazy novelties" and the son represents tradition and order. Now Edek enters the stage - he is barbarian, from another social class (neither the peasant nor the proletarian), the lover of Arthur's mother. Arthur, with his intellectual approach to life, cannot do anything. When his grandmother dies he realizes that he can only use force. He wants to use mindless Edek but it turns out that Ala cheated him with Edek so Arthur wants to kill the rival. Unfortunately Arthur is killed, dull Edek seizes power. Edek dances victory tango with Eugenius over Arthur's dead body. So what is really about this tragicomical "Tango" with its grotesque vision of the world? About the revolution. If we replace the family gap "old-young" with the historical correctness and we recognize the family as a society, we will see the fight for power, post-revolutionary chaos (kind of"revolution", victory, has been already done by Stomil and Eleonora). "Tango" is about the revolution (the protest of parents against the conventions of grandparents and the victory). This revolution results with contrrevolution - Arthur's desire of order, the attemted coup d'etat by introducing old values. But only force wins - totalitarian, mindless Edek. And this is the great portrait of social-political revolutions in our world. About the sexual-artistic revolution. The topic of social revolution overlaps with the sexual-artistic dimension. There we identified the family with the socielty, here let's call art - the revolution. Forms and conventions collapse - their opposite is the next form to be invalidated. Just changing the roles in family system is the parody of drama based on family's formula and the generation gap, it is also the parody of avant-garde in art, because the avant-garde is here represented by Arthur's parents. Edek and his dullness wins, so the cheap, mass art will also win (popular tango is a symbol of it). About crisis and decline of values - the whole process of transformations: first the rebellion of parents, then Arthur's contra against his parents and at last Edek's victory which brings to the collapse of spiritual values and to the victory of primitive force, material force. Arthur looks for the value - idea, which is still not used. He doesn't find it. It turns out that in his case the idea of subordination was much smaller than usual human jealousy and love, which made him try to kill Edek. The end of this drama and in this sense of examinig the crisis of values is pessimistic - mindlessness and force win, the crisis of values extends.
