The Myth Kafka - Words of a Visionary
A dream-like journey combining play and dance, dissolving the borders bewteen Kafka’s life and his fiction.
Experience 14 actors and dancers in a multimedia production that digs into the legend of Kafka. Wheather in “The Metamorphosis“, “The Trial“ or “The Castle“ – Kafka’s protagonists find themselves at the mercy of anonymous powers. In real life the author himself felt caught up between opposing forces, caught in a family where he felt like a stranger. A life long struggle and yet the source of his creative inspiration. An exploration of Kafka’s life and works, portrayed through acting, dance and illustration.
