Two directors face off. The subject of their argument? Globalised music and the state of the world. To illustrate their theses and overcome their opponent, they take full control over the performers and the technical equipment to attack, weaken or ridicule the other – with no eye towards moral principles. At times, the conflict could be mistaken for a friendly chat. At others, the clash of titans becomes all-encompassing and hurls into play the whole theatrical apparatus: pathos, sound power, stroboscopes, even the physical violence of their ensembles. Eventually, a doubt surfaces. Are they accomplices? And if so, to what end? One thing is certain: never underestimate the power of the stage gods.
