a state of constant fear, uncertainty, threat, need and exclusion … surrounded by events we are trying to make sense of and people we are no longer able to communicate with … exhausted by being physically, emotionally and mentally provoked … a world in which actions speak louder than words and words are no longer heard … where we are not willing to see and are afraid to look

“Intense stage presence” – theatre definition of actor’s fundamental “not yet expressive” level which characterizes the outstanding representatives of this profession and this vocation. And Orlik has it! (…) This theorizing, analyzing and “overthinking” about Orlik’s performance at the Poznań’s Słodownia is not so important to the power of his stage presence.

Juliusz Tyszka,

I admit, I can’t figure out this phenomenon of how to combine delicate quality and strength so effectively.

Stanisław Godlewski, Gazeta Wyborcza

“Mute” is not “long-winded”. Its creator and performer screams of silence, his body is shouting. Mute seems to be saying: I am lonely, I am looking for some sense, I do not understand, I want to be understood, my words are in me…
