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 5. December 2005, To the Castle and Back

„In short, Being has a memory. And thus even my insignificance – as a bourgeois child, a laboratory assistant, a soldier, a stagehand, a playwright, a dissident, a prisoner, a president, a pensioner, a public phenomenon, and a hermit, an alleged hero but secretly a bundle of nerves – will remain here for ever, or rather not here, but somewhere. But not, however, elsewhere. Somewhere here.“
