"Our current theatrical season is inspired by "The Trump Era" and is defined by Friedrich Nietzsche's quote: "For some time now our whole culture has been moving as toward a catastrophe, with a tortured tension that is growing from decade to decade: restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that wants to reach the end." Says De Mussa. The season also includes Animal Farm by George Orwell, set in Israel. Aristophanes' the Clouds set in Washington DC, Caligula by Albert Camus set in the White House, and GEIST Rendezvous with Destiny a film set during WWI and inspired by the Flying Dutchman Legend.
