Déjà Vu - Franz Kafka
Opening: Lazaristes Monastery - Studio Theatre, 04/03/2011

A comic story inspired by the motifs of Frantz Kafka works

It is known that Franz Kafka was an avid theater-goer. It is also known that he was secretly in love with an actress, who was a member of a wandering Jewish theatrical group. However, Kafka never wrote for the theater (except for a short work in prose, written in the form of dramatic dialogue). The world of the theater attracted, but at the same time intimidated him; it was a closed up and incomprehensible universe. So, I tried to imagine the kind of performance that Franz Kafka would have liked. If for a moment the time and space continuum was broken and he came to the theater today - here in Thessaloniki!
The "material" which became the canvas – for this performance – is the latest chapter of the novel ‘Amerika’ as well as the short story ‘A Fratricide’." (Extract from the director’s note).
