Capitalism, Demonstrated in Geometrical Order uses the stage to inform the audience about the moral principles of capitalism; it is a theatre form of a hearing that capitalism is subject to. It focuses on a group of refugees from Syria and Iraq, a test group, actually, whose survival refracts some important questions of contemporary ideology and politics. The dramatic plot is based on fantasised reality in which migrants in Subotica in their struggle to survive create a capitalist company for the rat meat processing.
