Premiere August 2005 in Buenos Aires

An Argentinean playwright and director, Claudio Tolcachir founded Timbre 4 – at once a theatre, a school, a company and a collective workshop. This new creation is set in the enclosed circle of a family. As each family member tries to find his or her place, violence replaces speech, eventually questioning our role as spectators.

Have a good day! arises from the collaboration of Vaiva Grainytė, Lina Lapelytė, and Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė. The three artists turn their focus toward the inner lives of cashiers in a shopping centre. “Good afternoon!”, “Thank you!”, “Have a good day!” : this opera examines what lies behind mechanical statements and their associated perfunctory gestures.

At the crossroads between theatre and stand-up, the first show by the visual artist Mohamed Bourouissa brings to the stage the different phases in the life of a woman in prison and its transformations. In the absence of pathos, the piece uses humour to circumvent the arduous nature of its subject matter.

Who is Diyaa Yamout, the Lebanese human rights activist, artist and blogger whose suicide shook the nation? We will never really know and this is not what matters.
