Hungarian director András Dömötör has staged this pre-Dada classic in Sigi Colpe's puppet-show set in an absolutely delightful way. Marionette-like, with a splendid mix of lightness and exaggeration, as well as an irrepressible desire for metamorphosis, the trio of performers – Elias Arens, Bozidar Kocewski and Linda Pöppel – romp to their heart's content. Allusions to Ubu plagiarism in current political affairs is included. It is intelligent, uninhibited and, despite its trashiness, played with tremendous attention to detail. When Ubu and Bordure keep on trying to mow each other down at the superhero showdown, the children’s bedroom fight is perfect for adults: brutal, funny and full of energy.
