In Samuel Beckett’s absurd drama, the protagonists are moving inexorably towards their apparently irrevocable fate. This play from the year 1956 is about nothing less than the end of the world: Hamm can’t stand, Clov can’t sit. Hamm is the master, Clov is the servant – and both depend on each other for survival. Stuck in two dustbins: Nagg and Nell, Hamm’s parents – the "accursed progenitors" – also unable to leave. Together, they play a never-ending endgame to counter their hopelessness, defying the perishing world with relentless irony and cheerful desperation, because: "Nothing is funnier than unhappiness."

With his production of "Endgame", Robert Wilson transfers a classic piece of world literature into one of his signature highly stylised stage cosmos’.
