Who is afraid of Strindberg? Theatre evening with Miss Julie

In the frame of a project titled Nordic Theatre Evenings The Scandinavian House and the U stolu Theatre present a supporting event for the play Miss Julie, the most famous drama by August Strindberg (Fröken Julie, 1888). Before the performance, theatrologist and expert on Scandinavian culture Karolína Stehlíková will give a short lecture on the context of the play. After the performance, a discussion with theatre director Ivo Krobot moderated by Barbara Gregorová will follow.

Theatre Evenings or Who is afraid of…?

In cooperation with selected theatres introducing texts of Scandinavian authors, the Scandinavian House has launched a series of Nordic Theatre Evenings. We would like the audience to get a deeper insight into the Scandinavian drama, that might not be as popular as the Nordic crime fiction, but can become similarly addictive. Do not be afraid to start tracking the Nordic theatre in the Czech Republic! Unusual horizons and views of the Nordic landscape guaranteed. No need for skis.

The events will be organised as commented theatre performances and consist of e. g. a lecturer’s introduction before the performance or a discussion of a various kind, for example sharing of impressions of the play. The introduction will provide information about the author, the performed text and a broader context of the piece, or can even familiarise the audience with the performing tradition of more famous, repeatedly staged dramatic texts. After the performance, there will be an opportunity to discuss it together. The Theatre Evenings will take place in different Prague and Brno theatres 2-4 times a year, depending on the current programmes.
