Kafka Dances
Location: Jungmann Square

Victorian College of the Arts

Kafka Dances performed by Victorian College of the Arts Postgraduate & Masters students in Performance Creation, Directors & Designers.

The alienated Czech writer Franz Kafka is seen as an embattled figure worn down by the sheer relentlessness of existence.

This piece situates the audience as witnesses to his endless winter. There’s then an eruption of exuberance from dancers whose energy overlaps with the trace of Kafka’s abject despair, swinging it towards strange ecstasy.
