Bogusław Schaeffer about Multimedia Thing:

The title (of drama) itselfs couldn?t say nothing more than, what  it timidly suggest. This is something theatrical, something for theatre, but first of all something for schaeffer?s actor ( may it be the best one). The piano player (Bogusław Schaeffer ) and  the Nice lady (Anna Maria Piróg -Kraszkiewicz) are only addition to entire and it should be emphasized that the play without them would not be what it wants to be ? on full evening performance.

I refered here to my dramas which I wrote forty years ago ? to solo ?Scenario? and ?Audience?. Here ?the same as there- actor reads his text, reading he interpretate, what can be interpretate,  but when he will feel inspiration he plays without the text, like a good piano player, who knows the work but preferes to read music.
This composition, which has read at the beginning- the same as previous- starts from lecture, from which it later walks away, to give an account of what also interested him.
Jan Peszek first read my text, then after many performance (there was over 1100 of them) he started to play, but his first copy, which had passed in antiquarian state, and which he keeps, still use it, only from time to time pretending that he comes back to reading, becouse with this first- now tored- text he arranged (or growed together).
Marek Frąckowiak i Waldemar Obłoza will do, what they want ?within the framework of reason and aesthetic canon.
