A solo dance recital inspired by Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal’s Too Loud a Solitude recounts the story of an eclectic elder who works as a paper-crusher in Prague. Iranian artist Afshin Ghaffarian performs what he calls a “murderous dance” of chaotic passion, illustrating how Hrabal’s protagonist uses his job to obsessively collect rare and banned books — and amass once-stifled knowledge without bounds. Vibrant and whimsical, the on-stage adaptation of Too Loud a Solitude offers a profound response to censorship in the modern world.
