Magic & reality
What Gabriel Garcia Marquez and the most popular series on Netflix have in common?
Magical realism in the essence of their storylines.
Marquez got the Nobel prize for “his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent's life and conflicts”. Isn’t it amazing to see a world as a real thing, but also a place where from time to time, through holes and cracks something magical appears and becomes existing?
One of the most popular modern authors Neil Gaiman will tell you there is not only one London, but three: ordinary London, London Below where terrible things dwell and London Above with angels and spirits.
Shamans of America see a world in three layers: lower, middle and upper. So, isn’t it natural if the same world view exists in different parts of the world?
This Tuesday we have a special guest who is going to share her knowledge about these mysteries. Irina Vetokhina - simultaneous interpreter, photographer and a storyteller will give a speech on magical realism, its roots and how this genre is evolving these days.
Come and don’t miss the opportunity to hear something unusual and have a great time.
