Room 752, Assorted Tricks

Dominique Bassal

“The most disjointed, clumsy and lewd humor that it is possible to imagine fades in comparison with the demonstrations we are witnessing here: children juggling with the freshly torn organs of their parents, athletes bouncing gracelessly on trampolines made of assembled human skins, diving boards overlooking huge pools of blood, fat aristocrats riding tiny tricycles and rushing at high speed on chained people, representatives with an exuberance worthy of our agricultural fairs giving real-time demonstrations of scalpels, bone saws and slicers on live subjects.

In short, nothing is spared to make this room a purely repulsive fair. All the more so since, at unpredictable intervals, the rage of cruelty stops suddenly, to let the athletes, the cutthroats and the fatties crush some tears on the fate of their victims all the while letting go endless and heartbreaking sighs of regret and while cohorts of minions summarily cleanse the place.

Soon the circus will be back on its feet.”
