The Scandinavian House presents an online debate about Ingmar Bergman, one of the most important personalities of Swedish film and theatre.
We will talk with Zbyněk Černík, a translator from Swedish who has translated numerous Bergman’s films and books to Czech, Dora Viceníková, a dramaturge of the Czech theatre Divadlo Na zábradlí, and Karolína Stehlíková, a theatrologist and expert on Nordic theatre. Moderated by Martin Severýn.
We will discuss Ingmar Bergman’s many faces: we will uncover this phenomenon of Swedish culture not only as a director and playwright, but also as a writer. We will mention the challenge of translating his books to Czech, and the tradition of staging his works in Czech theatres, including the contemporary situation (although heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic).
Free admission, no reservation needed
The event is financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and Prague Municipality.
