Karaoke Box, the Polish-language version of a play by contemporary Russian playwright Ivan Vyrypaev, premiered at Cracow’s Słowacki Theater Feb. 14. The play tackles issues such as interpersonal relations and the power of emotions in modern society.

Karaoke Box is the actual name of a place in Hong Kong where families shut themselves off from the outside world in small cabins to drink tea and sing karaoke.

In the play, two androids, a male and a female, meet up to sing karaoke in such a cabin. Unexpectedly, they begin to talk about love and suffering, using poetic language.

The Polish production is directed by Aneta Groszyńska, a promising theater director and a longtime assistant of Vyrypaev. The Polish translation is by Agnieszka Piotrowska. The stage design is by Paweł Cukier, while Karol Rakowski is responsible for the music, lights and multimedia.

Upcoming performances: March 20, 21 and 22 at 7 p.m.
Miniatura Stage (2 ¦w. Ducha Sq.),
Tickets available from the Słowacki Theater box office, 1 ¦w. Ducha Sq. and at www.slowacki.krakow.pl
