Z dolu do dolu: Sémiotická esej o ostravských P(p)estrých vrstvách
Up and Down the Shaft: A Semiotic Essay on the M(m)otley Layers
Languages of publication
The aim of the present study is to describe the theatrical environment in Ostrava where the identity of the region as a (former) mining power is performed on stage more than often. Central to the study is the analysis of an autobiographic novel Pestré vrstvy (Motley Layers) by an ex-miner Ivan Landsmann, adapted for stage by dramaturg Tomáš Vůjtek, and produced by director Janusz Klimsza in the underground mine Důl Hlubina. The key for the analysis is Yuri Lotman’s concept of signs pervading different cultural layers. The production was premiered in May 2011 and withdrawn in June 2014.
