A fascinating, multi-threaded and aesthetically sophisticated journey through time. We return to Krakow in the times of the Młoda Polska [Young Poland] period  on the basis of the text of Andrzej Wajda's famous play in The Stary Theatre in 1978.

Famous for her in-depth artistic explorations, Agnieszka Glińska takes us on a fascinating, multi-threaded and aesthetically sophisticated journey through time. We return to Krakow in the times of the Młoda Polska [Young Poland] period  on the basis of the text of Andrzej Wajda's famous play in The Stary Theatre in 1978.

The literary characters taken from modernist dramas meet the authentic inhabitants of the then Krakow: Zapolska, Przybyszewski, Dagny Juel and Boy Żeleński. However, in this boldly sketched clash between townsmen and philistines, artists and ignoramuses, someone is missing. Old photographs, scraps of information, speculations and trampled traces bring back the memory of those who once lived in the neighbouring streets, walked the same paths, met or went past our great-grandmothers and great-grandfathers, and who were doomed to non-existence by the horror of the Holocaust.

What is really important – even if it happened a hundred years ago – is still within us. As if it had happened yesterday.
