About the Play

'Foreplay is a French invention' - Ricardo Piglia

This work is inspired by a series of conversations between brother and sister, between a prostitute and her customer, between a man and his lover, between a traitor and his confidante. All the stories take place in a room, bedroom or dining room and the dialogues will be taken from three important 20th century Argentine writers: Roberto Arlt, Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortazar and one French writer, Marguerite Duras. Hence, Arlt, Borges, Cortazar and Duras (A, B, C, D). Aside from the alphabetical coincidence, all the stories reflect the impossibility of human relationship; the impossibility of dialogue.

Similar to some of vertical submarine's previous projects, such as Decomposition II (2008), Analogic (2009), Dust (2011), this performance will take the form of a reading.
