Normal Festival 2009 coming on November 2Normal Festival 2009 coming on November 2


For the fourth time Normal Festival presents the life stories and artwork of people with learning disabilities who find many of life’s tasks difficult and who were probably not able to succeed in school. For more information see www.normalfest.cz.

This year for the fourth time  this year s theme is Art is work, work is art!

Roll down the zip of your overalls, undo your top button, get out of those
tight shoes, throw off your shirt and beret and sit yourself down next to
gear wheels and a band saw, which are the work clothes for this year s
Normal Festival. Soon you ll get it that art is work and work is art.

It was people with learning disabilities who inspired this year s theme,
people who actively work in varied situations that many of us would not
expect. Art is traditionally one of those and this year Normal Festival
presents the best from this field, from the Czech Republic and abroad.

Film lovers can look forward to quality feature, animated and documentary
films, including A Lure From Meadows (Die Heide ruft) the bold and, from a
Czech point of view, controversial German documentary about sexual
identity, which will be presented by its authors and protagonists. There
is also an evening dedicated to Australian Adam Elliot. His Harvie Krumpet
won the Oscar for best animated short film in 2003, and his full length
feature, Mary and Max, is hitting Czech cinemas this year.

Music lovers are catered for this year at Normal Festival more than any
year before. Music meets film in the dynamic documentary about British
band Heavy Load. Also on the film menu will be works by people with
learning disabilities form all over the world.The main stars of the
theatre part of the festival will be the actors of the Polish theatre
group Teatr troche inny, who will take to the stage twice, once with
Beckett, once with Kafka. Divadlo Inventura will lighten the mood with
their etudy and Martin Marak s Martian photographic portraits. Slam poet
Bohdan Blahovec will also be running a workshop.

Come and do a stock check of your own assumptions about people you might
not expect much from.
