With director David Šiktanc Smíchov production of Curves

Tankred Dorst is not one of the best known and most often presented German playwrights in the country. You staged over five years was his second text. What is it?
During his studies at DAMU I - like my bachelor production - rehearsed his play Fernando Krapp wrote me a letter. I was fascinated at her like, with what is now faced when testing Turns: genre plurality, the emphasis on the situation and metaphor instead of cheap psychology characters ... Of course the grotesque theme of the game was different, many motifs - for Dorst characteristic - have remained.
Turn is one of the first Dorstových games. Tankred Dorst talks about his early texts as parabolas. Before me is a way of thinking close. It convex mirror, in this or in addition to a large extent fragmented by me may often provide a better reflection than action based on probability. Equally expressive acting often seems more authentic than psychological details ...

In the last three years after theatrical stints backpacking across the country. He has directed you in Hradec Kralove, Usti nad Labem and Pilsen. What is your relationship to Švanda Theatre in Smíchov?
I am happy that I am returning to Dorst just Švandovo at Studio Theatre, where she was the 1992 game Fernando Krapp wrote me a letter premiere directed by Peter Lébl and starring Borivoj Navratil. In addition to local studios coming back a third time, so it - although I had as a guest - I think almost for his home stage.

Turns passed from writing for more than fifty years. Undergone significant text updates?

Even after fifty years, Curve has a very fresh impression. The text we are - due to its age - obviously edited, but no dramatic changes did not confess, it was about us refine the language of each of the characters, which runs continuously during testing.

Actuality text always somehow related to politics. The corner is now also figure policy. How do the events of the Czech political scene in recent years reflected in your work?
Turn I discovered a few years ago and it seemed to me to be a good satire at that aggressive political style Paroubek. However, as time progressed, so has my view of the character of the chief minister Dr Kriegbauma. After the elections in 2010, which meant not only Paroubek fall, but also the rise of Public Affairs, I felt that the character of politics as a kind of demagogic leader has lost its topicality (I can think of at the moment a better word) and that we should focus on bureaucratic features the character without any specific. Then, however, came the direct election of the president and the return of rhetoric from the late nineties and we look again - and it seems that the last - changed ...

Some time ago you staged Meyenburgova ugly, before it was Edward Palmetshofer, Bertolt Brecht, Friedrich Dürrenmatt ... It seems that you are drawn to the German drama ...
It is true that, with few exceptions is devoted to texts from the German language area. In principle, therefore, that in spite of a clear structure, leave space for something that is beyond words, supremely lyrical, while the merciless and cruel. I once likened to a spinning wheel, but it calls for suspension, arrhythmias, which are in the final total of the loveliest.
