A musical journey to the world of poetry and songwriting of Julian Tuwim, a major figure in Polish literature. The play is reaching towards grotesque and absurd. It shows that the theatre is a magical place not only for the spectators but the actors as well. But it would not be this magical if not for the people behind the stage. Those who do not show themselves in the spotlight. Without them the theatre would not exist. A doorkeeper, an usher, a wardrobe mistress and an editor are heroes of the play. They create a musical story, a colourful collage of poems and song written by Julian Tuwim (among others you will hear ”Do prostego człowieka”, ”Pomarańcze i mandarynki” or ”Tomaszów”). In the play by Jan Jerzy Połoński and Jarosław Stańko the heroes are impersonating in a little bit different roles, for a moment they are signing differently. Signing differently using the language of the writer.
Performance presented in Polish, with translation.
