    The New Stage


    In Czech

    “History is that certainty produced at the point where the imperfections of memory meet the inadequacies of documentation,” writes the British author Julian Barnes in his novel The Sense of an Ending. 



    We tend to believe eyewitnesses, deeming their testimonies to be veritable. But how reliable is our memory? A number of studies have proved that it is not reliable at all: memories can “change”. Literature includes a host of stories dealing with the fickleness, elusiveness of that which we retain in our mind from a variety of vantage points.
    Eyewitnesses are expected to give a true account of an event, but what they remember may be at total variance with reality …
    The production is about storytelling, recollection and great personal as well as historical errors.
