The Process 2021

“The Process”, is a profane and macabre performance, itself unfinished and unstable, like the world of Kafka’s protagonist, Joseph K. We are watching a strange theatre in a theatre that is like a rehearsal of a performance that does not seem to answer the questions it poses. Joseph K clings to his role in a frenzy because he no longer wants to wake up to his night
