Odradek is a contemporary fairy tale inspired by the "Die Antiquiertheit des Menschen" Gunther Anders's text and highlighted by the irony of Kafka and H.M.Enzensberger, a poet who died during the gestation of this work. At the protagonist's home, an hermit, every wish is fulfilled even before being conceived. Officiant of this ritual is the express courier, a handyman pawn in the company in the delivery sector, the ubiquitous Odradek. From their meeting arises a forest of questions about the enchanted environment that surrounds them: where do the objects come from? And the news? Who is speaking on the other end of the phone?
