Rock opera by Milan Steigerwald and Pavla Forest. Based on famous novel by Franz Kafka.

Despite his iconic status on the international scene, Kafka may also be universally thought of as an author whose plots and storylines are dark, absurd and often hard to understand. We, however, consider this a humorously absurd challenge! It is believed that even Kafka alone laughed himself to tears while he was being read snippets of his own novel.  

ABOUT

Josef K, a chief agent in a large bank, wakes up on the day of his 30th birthday to find out that two unknown men invaded his apartment in order to arrest him. He's accused of his crimes (which are unknown to the audience and the main character alike!) and asked to defend himself in a mysterious court. The wheels of an unstoppable bureaucratic machinery are starting to turn making it obvious that Josef K. has no chance to stand his ground and fight for his right to freedom. He's being tried and his crimes investigated while he remains a "free" man. However, the dark cloud of this bizarre accusation hanging over his head along with circumstances seemingly working continuously against him prevent him from living life in any way resembling normality.

Come and see for yourself if you can make out what is really going on while our wild crew rock your socks off!
