More than 2000 years since the death of Gaius Caesar Germanicus, better known as Caligula, could not erase his image of a cruel, unusual and tyrannical Roman ruler. It can be boldly argued that he is one of the most controversial historical figures with an unusual and eccentric dictatorship. The fatigue of the ideologies gives birth to tyranny, and tyranny’s need for ideology destroys it, says the director of this extremely impressive and highly appealing performance Diana Dobreva. Until there is no ideology beyond the exercise of pure power, which is synonymous with pure violence, tyranny is invisible, acceptable, and invulnerable. The play of Albert Camus Caligula is a foreigner of the meticulous logic, Sisyphus of absolute power. And if the emperor is the director with Uncontrolled will, death is the premier to which everyone is obliged to come. And the more the dictator thirsts for death, the more his regime of rule becomes the norm, a beloved canon, a single dogma of the subjects. The current historical moment makes a particularly valid understanding of Camus’s that human life is a tragic attempt to fight the absolute emptiness. Death solves nothing, and life goes on in the unbreakable silence and emptiness.
