Direction note:
Quad, abbreviation for Quadrat I +2, is a work for four mimes, the first in a series of minimalist experimental television plays made by Beckett in the 1980s for the broadcaster Süddeutscher Rundfunk and on air in 1981. No words, only mimes movements, the sound of their steps and percussions. While filming, the work was been changed by Beckett himself in matter of costumes, lights, steps, percussions and direction of camera. Used as an exercise during my third workshop about the actor and his body, its interesting evolution and risult convinced me to bring it on stage.
