Introducing Michael Haneke's 'The Piano Teacher' (2001)

Activity: Public engagement and outreachPublic lecture/debate/seminar


Allyson Fiddler introduces the 'Piano Teacher' material before a screening of Haneke's 2001 film of that name. 'The Piano Teacher' scooped the Grand Prix in Cannes as well as the prizes for best actor (Benoît Magimel) and best actress (Isabelle Huppert). Haneke's film adapts the most widely known novel of Nobel Prize for Literature winner, Elfriede Jelinek.

The Dukes event helps Lancaster University to kick off its Jelinek Season and points forward to the first ever conference on Jelinek in the UK (http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fass/events/jelinek/) and to the world première of her 'Sports Play' in a translation by Penny Black (http://www.lancs.ac.uk/fass/events/jelinek/theatre-performance.htm).

Both events are generously sponsored by the Austrian Cultural Forum, London. http://www.acflondon.org
