Brno

Jessica Litwak

I taught two full days and gave a lectureand I had a wonderful time with my students.

The workshop was a mixture of practice and theory most of the students spoke English but since there was no translator we collaborated to find a common language.

The lecture was translated by my wonderful colleague Barbora Doležalová who bravely negotiated 90 minutes of lecture and dialogue regarding theatre as a vehicle for personal and social change.

After the first day of workshop and lecture Iwas wined and dined by my colleagues last night who showed me the strange sculptures and lovely cafes in Brno - fabulous discussions about art and life and politics and theatre for social justice.

Apparently the Mayor of Brno wanted a big sculpture of a man on a horse to grace the central square (because as my colleague said "there is a big sculpture of a man on a horse in Prague and he wanted an even bigger one". So he had many sculptors apply with designs and rejected them all for being too abstract and finally chose this one.

But then we noticed that everyone was going underneath the stature and looking up at the head of the horse. And we found a strange (and not accidental) message from the sculptor to the mayor
