King of the Kings
Demonstrations of power have rarely seemed as bizarre as the grotesque appearances of the overthrown Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi before the global public. In their play “King of the Kings“, the theatre group Lovefuckers usurp Gaddafi’s self-staging strategies and show him as a seventy-centimetre-tall hinged-mouth puppet in an absurd show consisting of power demonstration, music action, gunfire volleys and revolution.
