Jana Pulkrabek is writing and directing „The Legend Kafka –Worlds of a Visionary“. Manusarts and renowned choreographer Yaroslav Ivanenko – Balletdirector of Ballet Kiel- join forces for this international performance. Experience 14 actors and dancers in a multimedia production, that digs into the legend of Kafka. A dream-like journey combining play and dance, dissolving the borders between Kafka’s life and his fiction. The performance will be presented in Hamburg as part of the official celebrations for the twinning anniversary of Hamburg and Prague. The international premiere will take place in Copenhagen, where the show is to be presented at „Republique“ as the opening show of the theatre festival CPH:STAGE

While Kafka’s protagonists find themselves at the mercy of anonymous powers, the author himself felt caught up between opposing forces. A life long struggle which at the same time is the wellspring of his creative inspiration. An exploration of Kafka’s life and works interwoven in acting and dance.
