among the thousands of remarkable events that form the miracle of Being and its history, the event which I have called here the constitution or the genesis of the human “I” has an entirely revolutionary significance.
(Václav Havel, 4. 9. 1982 from prison Plzeň – Bory)
The first staging of Václav Havel's letters from prison from 1979 to 1983 as a reminder of a man who entered not only world history, but also our lives and our hearts.
Letters to Olga is loosely based on the production of A Dream in the Red House (Sen v červeném domě), which was inspired by the works of T. S. Eliot and Samuel Beckett. Václav Havel is the logical successor to these giants of world literature as a writer, philosopher and playwright.
A theatrical - movement - musical form of associative development of the text of letters on the inner world of a man in the midst of a life trial set within the cramped space of a prison with the never-ending presence of other inmates and the reflection of our relationship to the phenomenon of Václav Havel will build upon a similar tradition of some poetic projects of the Theatre in Dlouhá.
