Modern past

Mastellos is our parallel life. His actions could also be ours. He grants us knowledge, not the ‘before you do it’ advisor type, but the experience that comes from the ‘after you do it’ type. If there is history behind the piece, this comes to the surface because Mastellos narrates it: the narrator grants meaning to the idea. He grants it an un-museum like role, for us to gaze at and observe. He sets up a stage which has roles for all of us, in order for us to take part and build our own experiences. Mastellos will always be a student. And we, his audacious teachers.
