Mr Stepka’s visit

12 October 2017

It was our great honour last Friday to welcome Mr. Stanislav Stepka to BISB to speak with History, Slovak, Drama, Literature and Citizenship students about his experiences writing during the time of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic.

Mr. Stepka has a career spanning more than five decades, writing and performing for his theater company ‘Radošinské naivné divadlo’ which he established in 1963, five years before the events of the Prague Spring and the subsequent invasion by the armies of the Warsaw Pac. He continued writing and performing – despite the attempts at censorship by the regime - through the two decades of ‘Normalisation’ that followed, and shared with our students how it was possible to write in such a way that the board of censors could be subverted and ideas communicated to the audience that they would appreciate and understand. 

Mr. Stepka was a fascinating and engaging speaker with many humorous, emotive and insightful anecdotes and experiences to share. Our audience – both students and staff – were very appreciative of the opportunity to ask questions and listen to him talk. We are deeply grateful to Mr. Stepka for making time to come to the School, as we know he is in the midst of rehearsals and performances.
