Rendezvous In Bratislava
Friday, 26th October ,2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Miriam and her granddad are making a cabaret together. They’re the perfect double act: He’s got the stories, she loves telling them, and they both have a flair for the theatrical. The only problem is – they’ve never met. And he’s been dead for 37 years.
A time travelling piece of musical theatre which traces real family connections across national, historical and political borders, celebrating the power of laughter in troubled times.
Laco Kalina was a dramaturg, satirist, collector of jokes and writer of cabarets, born in Slovakia in 1913 and died in Germany in 1981. He survived the fascists only to be imprisoned by the communists, who believed he was a threat to the regime.Using his autobiographies, scripts and jokes, we present this generationally challenged duo: a contemporary cabaret featuring original music and real live Slovaks.
Humorný kabaret o nehumorných zážitkoch humoristu.
