Pluto: until recently, the ninth planet of the Solar System, and today no more than a plutoid or, even worse, a dwarf planet. When the International Astronomical Union stripped Pluto of the status of a full-fledged planet in 2006, many a tear has been shed. Did not the history of Pluto have such a beautiful start?
In his “Pluto p-Brane” Mateusz Pakuła leads to a range of fictitious, albeit improbable, meetings between the two discoverers of Pluto: Percival Lowell and Clyde Tombaugh. Lowell intuited the existence of the ninth planet. In 1930 Tombaugh made history discovering it. “That will be a story that took place and that at the same time, even more so, did not. Oh yes, it makes use of the biographies and lives on the so-called true life of a real human being, who really existed, but it takes the freedom to include plenty of fabrications” the instructions for the stage reveal.
In an escapist jaunt, Pakuła moves away from our “here and now” and turns his eyes to the beauty of the universe. Perhaps our reality, politically hot and socially unpleasant, encourages a look at the things that are greater than we are?
“Pluto p-Brane” is the directing début of playwright and dramatist Mateusz Pakuła.
