Theater — A Kafka Project
The Israeli director and choreographer Saar Magal gives Franz Kafka and his friends and characters a body. What they all have in common is black humor—when Kafka read the first pages of “The Trial” to his friends, this reportedly led to great laughter. Kafka left posterity an important but gentle and modest work. His protagonists are the epitome of the anti-hero. They are easily intimidated and go from one misadventure to the next. Yet they expose destructive social fears and forces, and may it cost them their lives. This dance and drama about the ridiculousness of human endeavor will be presented with English surtitles, except for the première on December 15.
Tickets are CHF 30-70 for adults and CHF 10 for youths and students.
