A minute. A short fragment of life. Or a life as short as a minute. Give, wait, spare someone a minute. ‘A Minute’ (in Polish: Minutka) is the name of a popular Polish brand of fast-brewing teabags. You might be ashamed to admit it, but you cannot say ‘no’ to your grandma. Drinking tea from your favourite glass is an activity that gains importance with age and ends up becoming a sort of ritual. It matches your daily portion of crossword puzzles and your afternoon TV series. The play was created out of love for our grandparents and also for them to enjoy. They are less and less socially active, and they have to confront their own solitude.
The play was also created for us, because we’re all afraid of getting old. But maybe being old is fun, and one doesn’t have to go through it alone?

The show consists of three miniatures which tell the stories of different characters. The most important means of expression are big, realistic puppets made by actors who took their inspiration from the works of Natacha Belova.

It was possible thanks to the financial assistance of the Capital City of Warsaw within the city’s Integrated Revitalisation Programme for the years 2014-2022.
