The last representatives of the species "man", left over from the time before cloning,
are stuck like stuffed animals in museum display cases, which then begin to move,
becoming dancing wheeled cabinets. A singularly lonely, self-pitying
Houellebecqesque male quintet reveal their masculine rituals in their sexual misery,
their frustration and melancholy, with all the vanity of the shirt-and-tie wearing type
of man. At the peak of the Houellebecq wave, this Lucerne production, based on the
novel of the same name, received international attention.
