''Barbelo is where we come from and where many would like to return and hide, and each one of us should choose what that is'', stands written alongside the latest play by Biljana Srbljanović, the most frequently staged Serbian playwright in Europe. ''Barbelo - that is ''Barbello'' - is a notion used in the history of Christianity to signify the first emanation of God. ...His primeval source, primordial cause, primordial principle, a metaphisical space where everything was descended from, even we.'' Beyond such a ''metaphisical explanation'' - or perhaps below it - images are shown that tenderly and humorously, yet ironically and polemically, talk of love and death, distance and closeness...appearing significantly less political than we would expect from a new play by Srbljanović. This ''neglect for politics'' which is nevertheless present, for politics is always present, has taken her manuscript towards areas of emotional bareness, ''where life is a nightmare''. In such a life both humans and dogs are mere wanderers, beings with no stronghold and background, sentenced to mutual exhaustion, but also solidarity that is only sometimes capable of turning into true understanding.
