Kierkegaard honored

October 04, 1992|By New York Times News Service

Budapest's first Kierkegaard Week, exploring the influence of the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, will be held Nov. 30 to Dec. 5. The week is sponsored by the Budapest Chamber Theater in honor of the debut of the Hungarian playwright Andras Nagy's award-winning drama, "The Seducer's Diary," based on an essay by the philosopher about his own life.

The week's events include a number of exhibits, such as one on Kierkegaard and Copenhagen at the Hungarian National Library. The week concludes with the premiere of "The Seducer's Diary" at the Budapest Chamber Theater on Dec. 5. (An English translation of the text will be available.) Most events, with the exception of the theater performance, cabaret and Mozart concert, are free. For information, call Zsuzsa Nemeth in Budapest at (36) 1 202-7587.
