DACAMERA Young Artists perform as part of the Czech Center Museum Houston’s Milan Kundera Book Club.

Robert Cremins and Dan Price from the Honors College at the University of Houston will lead us in a discussion of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, a best-seller that became a popular film. They will be in conversation with Houston author and physician Ricardo Nuila from the Humanities Expression and Arts Lab (HEAL) at Baylor College of Medicine.

DACAMERA Young Artists perform music from Beethoven’s late String Quartet in F Major, Op. 135, prominently referenced in the novel.

“We all reject out of hand the idea that the love of our life may be something light or weightless; we presume our love is what must be, that without it our life would no longer be the same; we feel that Beethoven himself, gloomy and awe-inspiring, is playing the “Es muss sein!” to our own great love.” — From The Unbearable Lightness of Being
