- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: January 29, 2020, 19:00 – 21:00
The first part of the evening will be given over to the play Bezruč?! by Jan Balabán and Ivan Motýl. In a slight modification of the play, we have focused on the relationship between Vašek/Bezruč and Marie/Maryčka. Taking part in the play, in the form of a staged reading, will be actors and non-actors, though all will delight together in the beauty and urgency of the text. (Featuring: Zuzana Truplová, Přemysl Bureš, Jakub Chrobák, Zdeněk Janošec Benda and co-author Ivan Motýl, director: Přemysl Bureš).
In the second part, participants and other guests will recall the life and oeuvre of Jan Balabán, one of the most important turn of the century writers.
Friends, relatives and admirers of the author will take part, including Ivan Motýl, Pavel Hruška, Zdeněk Janošec Benda, Přemysl Bureš and Jakub Chrobák.
