"Everything can happen, everything is possible and probable. Time and place do not exist; on a significant bases of reality, the imagination spins, weaving new patterns; a mixture of memories, experiences, free fancies, incongruities and improvisations."
 August Strindberg
Was Strindberg a precursor to Kafka?

Bridge builder between cultures, Prof. Harvey will help us explore the art connection between the father of modern theater, the Swedish playwright, essayist, painter and poet August Strindberg and the metaphorical worldview of Franz Kafka.

She has written a short playlet with three characters, Strindberg, Kafka and an art historian, named Tom. It will be performed for us following her presentation, a talk-through of Strindberg’s life and peculiarities.

A couple of excerpts from Strindberg’s plays, read by Byron LaDue and Kathi Diamant will illustrate the key points of her lecture.
