Three protagonists speak of their problems in life, blending literary and colloquial language. The Internet encourages the creation of new identities, and blog writers are well aware of this. This is the power of the characters they create, providing a freeze-frame of our reality in three chapters: “The very idea of staging blogs is interesting in itself. (…) The act of creating a narrator/protagonist is automatically inscribed within it, though this is often no more than a mask for the real author. Questions of its authenticity or reliability must always take a back seat – these are not what determines the value of the texts,” wrote Monika Kwaśniewska. “In the Stary Theater play the most important thing is the actor, backed by only a handful of significant props. All the fragments feature performances that are fascinating and well crafted, created with a dose of whimsy, freedom, and wit; quite apart from their appeal they help bring out the themes tackled in ‘blogs.pl’.” We listen to the monologues with growing interest and increasing enthusiasm. We are seduced by the new language, the visual descriptions, the emotional confessions, the sincerity. This is how the contemporary Polish language deals with the world of media and computers – with spunk, irony, and wit.
Jacek Cieślak, Rzeczpospolita
