'The performance lasts one hour and is like one’s paging through an old family album. A shade of sepia, some crumbs of melancholy, a gram of nostalgia. And also a teardrop of sentimentalism, quite inevitable in such circumstances."

Paweł Głowacki, Dziennik Polski

One of the most spectacular open-air productions by Jerzy Zoń, bearing reference to the enchanted world of a childhood filled with hopes and fears and inspired by the director’s life and the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Hugo Claus and Emil Zegadłowicz. The show has been presented at over 60 festivals in 15 countries, including Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Iran, Austria, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, France, Romania and Spain.
