    Not quite sure how this ended up getting produced in America, but I have to say that Joseph Strick s 1963 film captured the play much better With Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy even getting a small role before he ventured off to space The Balcony mostly takes place in Madame Irma s house of illusions, which is an elaborate brothel catered for men who want to live out their most decadent fantasies

    Would it perturb you to see things as they are To gaze at the world tranquilly and accept responsibility for your gaze, whatever it might see I found this less Brecht andPassolini Revolution became chic at some point This is about assuming roles in tumultuous times I found the endearing aspect to be the role of the siren or chanteuse The pimp has a grin, never a smileMuch as Steven Godin asserted on

    This book is a work of dramatic genius Genet poses for us the question, What is the nature of virtue and its relationship with power In his setting, he chooses a brothel, with the actors in the brothel trapped in a never ending cycle of violent fiction that mirrors the events of the revolution happening outside the brothel walls.The are great, witty lines such as The pimp has a grin, never a smile There

    HmmI really like what Genet was trying to do here, but I m not sure that it is pulled off as well as it could have been This play is very much postmodern, and in that sense it reminded me a lot of Pynchon s Gravity s Rainbow in terms of style and themes Like Genet and also like the Frankfurt School sociologists, with their emphasis on Freud s death instinct Eros v Thanatos and the Marquis de Sade, with whom

    I lost count of how many times I have read this play, further I have watched it being rehearsed over and over and performed three times, still I am quite sure I do not understand what is going on I can t tell reality from fantasy, I don t understand who has power and who s faking, or even if anyone actually has power or is faking Every time I read it, there s something new to it, but I feel like I haven t read it enough ti

    The Balcony is aa play that explores the relationship between realism and fantasy The setting, a brothel where the clientele pays to live in a very realistic version of their fantasies But when the outside world or the real starts to seep in, the clients have a hard time separating fact from fiction and start to lose themselves as they get lost in their roles The Balcony by Jean Genet relies quite heavily on the concept of ico
