Rendezvous in Bratislava (Jabberwocky Market) on Saturday 6th October 2018
Miriam and her granddad are making a cabaret together. They're the perfect double act; he's got the stories, she loves telling them and they both have a flair for the theatrical. The only problem is they've never met. (He's been dead for 37 years).
Jan 'Laco' Kalina was a dramaturg, satirist, collector of jokes and writer of cabarets, born in Czechoslovakia in 1913. A Slovak Jew, he survived the fascists only to be imprisoned by the communists, who believed him a threat to the regime. Digging through objects and stories from Laco's remarkable life, Miriam searches for her granddad's voice through his own jokes, skits and songs, conjuring up an archival cabaret that reverberates with laughter from a very different place and time.
With original music and a live band of Slovaks, Rendezvous in Bratislava traces family connections across national, historical and political borders, and celebrates the power of laughter in troubled times.
