SCÁTHANNA Ó PHRÁG: TIONSCADAL FRANZ KAFKA

SHADOWS FROM PRAGUE: THE FRANZ KAFKA PROJECT

Mórfhórsa i litríocht an domhain é saothar Franz Kafka ina bhfuil gnéithe den réalachas snaidhmthe le gnéithe fantaiseacha – is minic daoine aonair uaigneacha ann agus iad basctha brúite ag cumhachtaí an mhaorlathais nach dtuigeann siad. Faightear staideanna agus téamaí Kafkaúla i saothar an ghearrscéalaí Daithí Ó Muirí agus tá saothar le Kafka aistrithe ón mbun-Ghearmáinis ag an Muiríoch. Is é a bheidh in Scáthanna ó Phrág ná an Muiríoch ag léamh, tionlacan ceoil le Seán Mac Erlaine, íomhánna ar scáileán agus scath-phuipéid le Púca Puppets.

A major force in world literature, Franz Kafka’s disturbing work fused elements of realism and the fantastic – often featuring lone individuals crushed by incomprehensible bureaucratic powers. Short story writer Daithí Ó Muirí, whose own work explores Kafkaesque situations and themes has translated Kafka into Irish, working from original German texts. Shadows from Prague will feature Daithí reading these versions to musical accompaniment from Seán Mac Erlaine (saxophone, clarinet, sound effects), and on-screen imagery and shadow puppets created by Niamh Lawlor of Púca Puppets.
