DURATION

70 min.

Simply is an intimate concert for two actors based on the drama by Piotr Wawer Sr. The point of departure for the text, which transforms a documentary formula in an original way, are autobiographical experiences. The author goes back to the 1980s and events connected with the death of his wife. The story initiated by a fatal medical error relates not only to personal experiences, but becomes a moving record of institutional abandonment, ethical failure of medical structures and social sensitivity. In spite of the lapse of many years these issues seem ominously up-to-date and the actor's voice surprises us with its bitter humour. The performance not only presents a story, but becomes a tale about memory and its mechanisms, about the way we construct the narrative about our lives, about how we call ourselves into being – on our own terms this time. The extremely autobiographical subject matter becomes the basis for emphatic understanding with the audience. Private and public issues intersect in it, while a documentary story is juxtaposed with innovative and minimalistic theatrical means.
