What can be said about Ony? For all those who have become used to Marta Guśniowska's texts - funny, heart-warming fairy tales, often turned on their heads - Ony may come as quite a surprise. It is a lyrical story about the life of Ony, whom we meet as an eight-year-old boy and part with at the end of his unusual life.
The performance was staged by director Jacek Malinowski. It is full of plot twists and original multimedia effects created by Mauntas Baurgaustas. The authors of music and set design are well-known Lithuanian artists Antanas Jasenka and Giedre Brazyte, who have often collaborated with the Bialystok Puppet Theatre in the past years.
Ony is fun for the whole family. Everyone will find something to their liking in the show. Some will be captivated by the surprising adventures of the main character, others will enjoy the play with words or philosophical reflections.
