“Eight minutes” is a play where viewers are the main characters. Some members of the audience have different names and different lives which may not be as comfortable as their own. But neither Jolanta wanted to be Jolanta nor Boleslov wanted to be Boleslov but they had no choice. Somebody had been born blind, somebody’s sexuality isn’t like majority’s, somebody has depression which is not taken as an illness. But life goes on.

“Eight minutes” allows to walk a mile in other people’s shoes and feel what it means to have eight minutes of their lives. The main goal of the play is to give the audience a chance to move their principles and to widen the understanding of “normal”.
