Arnošt Goldflam: His Own Man

Illustration
  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: March 24, 2017, 19:00 – 21:00

Presentation of the collection Horror a další hrůzy (Horror and other Horrible Stuff), a collection of plays by Arnošt Goldflam, a man of the theatre who in his unmistakable style has developed and enhanced the drama of the 1960s, absurdist and Dadaist drama, while remaining idiosyncratic and true to himself. An evening not only for lovers of contemporary Czech drama but also for aficionados of what is known as the Brno school of sentimentality.

Petr Minařík, editor in chief of publishers Větrné mlýny, will host the evening, while the author will read from his work. Followed by debate.

Diary entry for 26. April 2005, To the Castle and Back

„And here we are once more on the subject of Czech small-mindedness. Look after Number One, don’t get mixed up in other people’s business, keep your head down, don’t look up – we’re surrounded by mountains and those whirlwinds from the outside world will blow over our heads and we can go on burrowing in our little backyard. How many wise essays or books have been written about his domestic self-absorption of ours!“
