Pseudo-practical joke according to Alfred Jarry

Ubu King is a work of chaos where one spends one's time brutalizing, plotting and waging war. And in the history of theater, this piece is a great debacle. It carries with it all the violence, the sarcasm and the insolence of youth. In our Ubu, the paintings do not follow each other, they collide and challenge each other in an emphatic, ironic and critical manner. It seemed to us fundamental that the plot of the show follows that of the play, that the fate of the actors follows that of their characters, that the show is destroyed in the time of the performance: the story of a troupe playing Ubu king and tearing himself apart playing Ubu king.
