The outstanding works of literature written during the period between the world wars, all tied together with a commentary, and MC’s reflection. Sławek does not speak to us, he does not recite, perform, instead, he talks, presents his point of view, and, which is as important, he charms us with his grace of a slightly embarrassed, cultured, and elegant intellectual. Spontaneously and daringly, lyrically and reflectively, he shares with us his thoughts on the leitmotif of the performance, i.e. nothing new under the sun. While the audience says that Sławek Holland moves and makes him laugh to tears. (A fragment of the text written by Jacek Bursztynowicz)
