As part of the Mobile Cultural Center of the Gdansk Cultural Archipelago in Chelyabinsk on July 24 and Zabianka on July 31, the Miniature will set up a special theater tent that only children can enter. The Legendary Miniature Theater is a series of short puppet shows based on Gdansk legends performed in direct contact with a small audience. The audience is small – no more than four children can sit on the pillows, and each performance lasts a few minutes.
In August, the Miniature will be held every Sunday at the Oran Amphitheater in Oruński Park as part of the GAK Music Stage Project’s High Noon Theater project. On this occasion, there will be a special screening of the two performances before the premiere. On August 8 at 12.00 you can watch the play “Pirates of Good Deeds” directed by Anna Volshchak, prepared on the occasion of the 425th anniversary of the Gdansk Library. The artists used two materials related to the library – Polish and paper. The director of the play was inspired by the book “Poems about pirates of good deeds and other creatures” by Joanna Müller, who beautifully uses the Polish language in poetry for children. His “poetry parcels” continue the best poetic traditions under the sign of Brzechwa or Wawiłow. Ideas for scenographic elements and puppets are associated with the form of the book and the different uses of paper. Mother and son Kacper go to this paper world full of good pirates, sea creatures and strange creatures.
In turn, on August 22 at 12.00 there will be a performance of “Direction: Earth”, directed by Michal Derlatka and co-produced by the Department of Municipal Economy of the Gdansk Mayor’s Office. and waste segregation.

Inside are unique puppet shows inspired by Gdansk legends, such as “Why is the Baltic Sea salty?” The project is unique in that only a few children (3-4) can enter the tent, and the show will last only a few minutes! Together with director Michał Derlatka, the miniature actors are convinced that no play is the same, and that each is a unique experience.
