Divadlo Feste: Václav Havel: The Anatomy of Hate

Divadlo Feste: Václav Havel: The Anatomy of Hate

A theatre production in a public space of Brno will process a speech by a former Czechoslovak president on 28 August 1990. Speaking at a Conference on Hatred in Oslo, Václav Havel described the motives of creation and manifestations of collective hatred. An experienced dissident, so soon after the fall of communism, describes the atmosphere and the situation, which is unfortunately so current in the countries of the Visegrad Four today.

Director: Jiří Honzírek

Patrik Ouředník, Europeana: Brief History of the Twentieth Age

Patrik Ouředník, Europeana: Brief History of the Twentieth Age

An original walk through the memory of the past century, based on the book Europeana: A Brief History of the Twentieth Age by Patrik Ouředník (2001). In addition to real events, the author tells crazy anecdotes and mixes reality with fiction.
There is a man and a woman on stage. He’s sixty years old, she’s thirty. He is the famous French actor Arnault Lecarpentier, she is a young talented actress Lucie Boissonneau. They are our guides through „history“ and „stories“ of the 20th century, its key moments, thoughts, catastrophes … They are a sort of a mirror of our relationship to memory.

Theatre adaptation and direction: Sarah Lecarpentier
Performers: Arnault Lecarpentier, Lucie Boissonneau
Performed in French with Czech subtitles.
The show will be followed by a discussion with Jacques Rupnik on 22 May in HaDivadlo.

Tickets can be purchased via the Brno National Theatre box office.

This performance is presented in cooperation with the Theatre World Brno festival.
