Hello Piotr! Please tell me about your 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show, Boy: Looking For Friends.
I will perform my solo clown show: Boy: Looking For Friends where I explore theatre, comedy and poetry of clown. It is a story about a boy living in his suitcase who needs to embark on a difficult quest to save his best friend and meet his deepest fears. It is a clown show so of course everything is going wrong.
What is the attraction of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe? What do you think of Edinburgh?
It is my first Edinburgh fringe in my life and I can’t explain how excited I am. The fact I can perform there is a huge step forward for me, especially because in Poland almost no one knows what Fringe is and I never met any other solo performer from Poland who ever did fringe in Edinburgh.
Who inspires you?
Taika Waititi, Dr Brown and my therapist Gosia.
Are there other shows you want to check out during the Fringe?
Mostly clown shows. Dr Brown, Dan Lees, Julia Masli, Zuma Puma, Viggo Venn.
Finally, ask and answer a question of your own.
How are you?
I am good, thank you. And you?
I am good. And you?
I am also good. Thank you. You?
