Rendezvous in Bratislava UK tour 2020
January 24 @ 7:00 pm - May 17 @ 5:00 pm
Rendezvous in Bratislava combines new music, a four-piece British Slovak band, comedy, cabaret and original 1940s photographs and recordings to share the life story of writer Miriam Sherwood’s grandfather – Jan ‘Laco’ Kalina.
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.
Using his autobiographies and cabaret material, we present this generationally challenged duo: a contemporary cabaret featuring original music and real-life Slovaks.
