Miro Gavran
 
Miro Gavran is a contemporary Croatian author, born in 1961. His works have been translated into 35 languages, and his books have come out in 150 different editions at home and abroad. His dramas and comedies have had more than 200 theatre first nights around the world and have been seen by more than two million theatre-goers.

He is the only living dramatist in Europe to have a theatre festival devoted solely to his plays outside his/her homeland; the Gavranfest has been held in Slovakia since 2003.

He debuted in 1983 with the drama Creon's Antigone, speaking out forcefully about political manipulation. This was followed three years later by the drama Night of the Gods, the theme being the relationship between the artist and the powers-that-be under a totalitarian system. He then wrote a cycle of plays concentrating on male-female relations, in which his heroes were often great historical persons. He has created a series of complex female characters. His heroines are both strong and emotional. He has written some forty plays to date, including Death of an Actor, All About Women, All About Men, George Washington's Loves, Chekhov Says Good-Bye to Tolstoy, How To Kill The President, Greta Garbo's Secret, Parallel Worlds, Nora in Our Time, My Wife's Husband, Dr Freud's Patient...

There have been first nights of his plays throughout the world, in: Rotterdam, Washington, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Buenos Aires, Waterford, Mumbai, Bratislava, Prague, Ljubljana, Sarajevo, Krakow, Belgrade, Budapest, Athens, Augsburg, Vienna, Sofia.

He has had nine novels published: Forgotten Son, How We Broke Our Legs, Klara, Margita or A Journey into a Former Life, Judith, John the Baptist, Pontius Pilate and The Only Witness to Beauty, Kafka's friend, along with a collection of short stories entitled Small Unusual People.

In his early novels, he describes life in the Croatian provinces, featuring everyday folk, anti-heroes of sorts, who retain a positive stance towards life even when they are confronted with injustice and major difficulties. This is perhaps best seen in his novel, Forgotten Son (1989), in which the central personage is a slightly mentally challenged young man of twenty.

As a forty-year-old, Gavran started to write psychological-existential novels inspired by biblical characters, bringing them nearer to the sensibilities of contemporary readers. These books have been popular with both believers and non-believers, since their messages are universal.

His books have been published in all corners of the globe: in Beijing, Vienna, St Petersburg, Oslo, Istanbul, Paris, Prague, Bratislava, Sofia, Ljubljana...

Gavran has received more than twenty literary awards in Croatia and abroad, including the Central European Time Award, given annually in Budapest to the best Central European author for overall opus, as well as the European Circle Award given to writers for the confirmation of European values in their texts.

With insight and humour, Miro Gavran has written eight books for children and young people: All Sorts of Things in My Head, How Dad Won Mum, Head Over Heels in Love, Happy Days, Farewell Letter, Plays with a Head and a Tail, Try to Forget and The Teacher of My Dreams. These books have also found their way to adult readers.

Gavran earned his degree in Dramaturgy at the Academy of Theatre, Film and Television in Zagreb.

He first worked as a dramaturge and theatre director at the famous ITD Theatre in Zagreb. Since 1993, he has been living and working as a free-lance, professional writer. His theatre and prose texts have been included in numerous anthologies in Croatia and in countries outside its borders, and his work is studied at universities throughout the world.

He has been living in Zagreb, Croatia since he was twenty. He is married to the actress Mladena Gavran, and founded the Gavran Theatre with her in 2002. Their son Jakov is a student of acting.

TSJECHOV ZEGT TOLSTOJ VAARWEL

‘Tsjechov zegt Tolstoj vaarwel' is een spirituele komedie rond een fictieve ontmoeting tussen twee groten van de Russische Literatuur. Twee generaties en twee levensvisies, die van een ‘éminence grise' en die van een ‘jong aanstormend talent', komen met elkaar in botsing.

De jonge veelbelovende schrijver Anton Tsjechov is samen met zijn kersverse echtgenote, de knappe actrice Olga Knipper, op bezoek bij zijn veel oudere collega Ljev Tolstoj. Spoedig blijkt dat de Grote Meester het in zijn ogen “beginnend schrijvertje” niet louter en alleen uit belangstelling voor diens werk uitgenodigd heeft. Hij wil Tsjechov, wiens talent hij wel erkent, overhalen een boek te schrijven dat de neerslag vormt van hun gesprekken, tot meerdere eer en glorie van zichzelf. Daarenboven blijkt hij een bijzondere en niet direct literaire interesse aan de dag te leggen voor de charmante Olga. Zijn libido, dat hem niet minder dan 13 kinderen opleverde, blijft Tolstoj ook op latere leeftijd behoorlijk parten spelen. Zijn echtgenote Sofia, ook al geen doetje, ziet op haar beurt Tsjechov wel zitten en benadert Olga om samen met haar een boek te maken waarin ze haar turbulente huwelijksleven met een genie uit de doeken kan doen. Zo ontstaat een merkwaardig spelletje kwartet dat onder invloed van behoorlijke doses wodka bij momenten krankzinnige vormen aanneemt.

De meermaals bekroonde Kroaat Miro Gavran, wiens werk in 30 talen vertaald werd, neemt in dit verrassende stuk een lichtvoetig loopje met de historische waarheid. Theater aan de Stroom presenteert in samenwerking met Cour & Jardin de Vlaamse creatie.

Gavran: Kad me pisanje prestane veseliti, prestat ću pisati

Piše: Valentina Mlađen
26.03.2011.

Miro Gavran još jednom je osvojio Zadar. Iako je u Zadar stigao predstaviti knjigu "Kafkin prijatelj" njegov susret s čitateljima, u Multimedijalnoj dvorani Gradske knjižnice Zadar, pretvorio se u pravi susret s piscem tijekom kojeg je bilo govora o čitavom njegovom opusu, životu pisanju i slično.

Iako se predstavljanje knjige pretvorilo u zanimljiv dijalog pisca i čitatelja glavni razlog dolaska Mire Gavrana u Zadar bio je ipak "Kafkin prijatelj". Uz njega knjigu je predstavio urednik Zoran Maljković koji je rekao nešto o samom neobičnom formatu knjige, koja je izdana kao prva od knjiga u biblioteci "Priča na dar".

Roman "Kafkin prijatelj" donosi snažnu priču o dvojici prijatelja književnika, Franzu Kafki i Maxu Brodu, te o ženama koje su ih sudbinski odredile. Radnja je smještena u Prag u razdoblju 1903. do 1924., a zatim tijekom 1953. u Tel Aviv. Roman je neobična kombinacija stvarnih faktografskih podataka i piščeve bogate mašte. Gavran je na predstavljanju istaknuo kako ljudi ovaj roman doživljavaju na različite načine, što je i htio postići, jer ovo nije samo priča o piscima nego i o jednom neobičnom i vrijednom prijateljstvu.

- Njihove životne priče i biografiju iskoristio sam kako bih ispričao priču o ljudima koji su izrazito emotivni, o jednom neobičnom prijateljstvu. I doista je neobično da dva čovjeka koja se bave istim poslom imaju takav odnos. Iako je Max objavio mnogo više od Kafke on je ipak svo vrijeme više vjerovao u svog prijatelja Franza Kafku nego u samog sebe i više je svoje energije koristio da bi njega afirmirao nego sebe, objasnio je Gavran ono što ga je privuklo ovoj priči. A, uz profesionalnu, u priču je upleo i muško-žensku dimenziju. Gavran je još otkrio kako je prije nego je konačno napisao "Kafkinog prijatelja" ovaj roman počinjao pisati čak tri puta i svaki put bi odustao.

Osim ovog romana Gavran je na predstavljanju predstavio još neke svoje knjige, od kojih su neke izišle dosta davno, ali čitanje ulomaka iz tih djela naišlo je na potpuno oduševljenje u publici popraćeno smijehom.

Nakon predstavljanja knjiga slijedio je razgovor s čitateljima koji su spremili veliki broj pitanja za najpoznatijeg hrvatskog pisca. Na samom kraju susreta odgovarajući na jedno pitanje Gavran je priznao da je sad trenutno u fazi kad nema ideje za slijedeće djelo, ni književno ni dramsko, ali može reći da je sretan. U svakom slučaju pisat će dokle god ga to bude činilo sretnim. Kad ga pisanje više ne bude veselilo Gavran je rekao kako će tad prestati pisati. A s obzirom na navalu na kupnju i potpisivanje knjiga nakon susreta mi se nadamo da će Gavrana pisanje usrećivati još dugi niz godina.
