«In the contemporary world the myth of Prometheus has been put at the fringe of History, while History has been put at the fringe of Memory and Memory at the fringe of Time. Time has been frozen and Prometheus moves in it with a blur memory, recyclable material of a desert space. He utters fragments of his experience as a nightmare from the future that defines the present implacably. He speaks about "the end of an end without ending" in a dead landscape. His plead is not heard, since only desert surrounds him. His obsessive speech reflects the short circuit of the body and the meaning. He suffers from the syndrome of the gulf. He converses with the oversights of his loneliness, exiled at the theatre scene. He converses with the fragments of himself on the broken mirror. His rage and his crying for his repeated defeat is everlasting.».
