It is directed by a young director, Daniel Kovacs, still a student at the Academy. The short, one-and-a-half-hour show is a visual, simple, somewhat cartoon-like performance with good acting. The Spanish baroque play is not taken too seriously, as the "dream" part of the play, which transforms Segismundo into a hero and a king, is just a joke. One can never believe in it. All crowns are made of paper and mantles of simple blankets. "Life" remains a prison where one can only dream about crowns and freedom.
Full of jokes and humour, fresh and easy, Life is Dream comes across as a fashionable student exercise.
