11.5.1950: Ionesco's "The bare singer"
Eugène Ionesco's first play, the farce "the bare singer" was first performed in the Paris Théâtre des Noctambules. The one-act play with eleven scenes reveals the estrangement of a married couple in monotonous, meaningless monologues and exposes the increasing meaninglessness of social forms of interaction. The style of set phrases without meaning was also used by Ionesco in his works "The lesson" (1950) and "The chairs” (1952). Ionesco (1909-1994) was one of the most important representatives of absurd theater alongside Samuel Beckett.
