The performance is created by young actors selected in the “Butterfly Hunting” competition for young theatre artists. It was they who chose the classic position of Polish contemporary prose - “The Old Age and Other Times” by Olga Tokarczuk.
The strength of the performance is the clash of contrasts: the energy of youth and nostalgic reflection on passing and duration. The perspective of debuting actors meets here with the vision developed by an experienced director. Konrad Dworakowski proposes a return to the theatre of narration and symbol, following the universal story created by Tokarczuk outside the place and time. Young actors, on the other hand, by activating a mythical story, add the necessary contemporary contexts to it.
