In those days, Catalonia had its own, national, alternative, theatre-company, called “La Fura del Baus” (The Fury of the Bull). They sailed their own, national, alternative, theatre ship, called “Naumon” (The Ship of the World), that was officially adopted by the Presidents’ Wife Herself. Alongside this huge ship the Fools found a mooring and protection. The Chance and Crash Meeting Point experienced there such a dazzling revival that by the excess of visitors the harbour police had to close the premises. By now, the Naumon is lost somewhere in a harbour along the Rhine, with no rights to sail. By now, the former President is unmasked as the godfather of the National Catalan maffia and his wife as the ‘mother superior’ who cashed millions. By now, that mooring in the Barcelona harbour is a posh dependence of the Hermitage Museum next to a posh hotel. But Azart still sails and still bears proudly her name: La Nef des Fous et du Monde (The Ship of Fools and of the World), as runs the title of the first French translation (1497) of the book The Shyp of Folys.
