Dollarcyclus part 1
is a respected citizen of the city of Athens. Respected because of his great
generosity, his parties, dinners, and generous donations. He cheerfully strolls
through life without a care in the world until the creditors come by his door
and his servants point out to him that his funds have run dry. Timon is
convinced that his friends will save him. He sends out his servants to borrow
some money for him. The doors remain closed, the excuses of his good friends
are shameless. The once so cordial Timon changes into a genuine misanthropist. It
must be said: “money does not make one happy”. Timon withdraws into the woods.
He is bent on revenge.
Timon van Athene is the first part of the Dollarcyclus, a
three-part series on the financial and moral crisis of the modern capitalist
performance by Robby Cleiren, Sara De Bosschere, Luc Nuyens, Sofie Sente, Stef
Stessel, Michael Vergauwen, and others.
