Miriam and her granddad, Jan ‘Laco’ Kalina, are making a cabaret together. They’re the perfect double act. He’s got the stories, she loves telling them, and they both have a flair for the theatrical. The only problem is – they’ve never met. And he’s been dead for 37 years.
Digging through objects and stories from Laco’s remarkable life, Miriam searches for her granddad’s voice through his own jokes, skits and songs, conjuring up an archival cabaret that reverberates with laughter from a very different place and time.
With original music and a live band of Slovaks, Rendezvous in Bratislava traces family connections across national, historical and political borders, and celebrates the power of laughter in troubled times.
Part of Platform8, Festivals of Theatre for Peterborough produced by Jumped Up Theatre.
