“In America” ​​by Philipp Hochmeier (photo credit Stephen Bruegler)

In honor of Franz Kafka's 100th anniversary, versatile Austrian actor Philipp Hochmeir brings Kafka's seminal work “America” ​​to the stage at the Schulen Nursery on Thursday, May 30 at 7:30 p.m.

“America” ​​tells the story of a homeless man in the early 20th century.

Banished from Europe by his parents, Carl Roseman does not enjoy the promise he desires in America, but instead experiences social decline. Kafka's novel fragment “America” ​​is an exaggerated picture of myths, predictions, facts and imagination.

The journey of immigrant Carl Roseman comes to mind. From entering New York harbor to the final train ride to the great natural theater of Oklahoma, this is the odyssey of a man in search of a connection who, until the end, does not despair of his own loneliness, and perhaps finally finds it. The Oklahoma Theater was the home he was constantly searching for.

Philipp Hochmair doesn't just play Karl Rosemann in his appearance.

As a virtuoso actor, he shifts between multiple characters in a multi-faceted soliloquy every moment, presenting the novel as a solo actor's imagination and experience.
