The Vile Parody of Address is a piece which is fundamentally based on the capacity for improvisation. Improvisation is contained both in the dancing and in the text. Each interpreter's role has a clearly defined personality which is, in turn, contaminated by each dancer’s true identity which, at the same time, gets confused, to a certain degree, with his partner’s role on the stage.
