Description A side note on Malina's stage setting for Rajmont's Troilus and Cressida production (Činoherní studio – Drama Studio, 1979). Its success was based on a radical modification of the text through which Alex Koenigsmark crossed the confines of a mere adaptation and significantly contributed to the shaping of the production. Joining Teiresias and Pandar into one character, namely that of Kibitzer, suppressing the ancient origins of the play, move it into an absolute timelessness. Rajmont's directing of this "grotesque about militant rubbish", as the scenographer, labelled the production, did not only relate straightforwardly to current reality and to demythologization of all values but it accomplished to get at a more general message.
