Summary/Abstract: Karolina Wycisk writes about the plays of Marcin Cecko, an artist who deals not only with theatre, but with photography and performance as well. He is also one of the founders of the Warsaw neolinguistic poetic group. Using the examples of performances Cecko has created with director Krzysztof Garbaczewski – Balladyna, The Odyssey, The Sexual Life of Savages - Wycisk points out the main features of Cecko's texts: performativity, a large margin for actors' improvisation, use of puns, a disregard for plot and grammar. The author of the article also mentions the incessant transformations of his work, as he is unwilling to have it recorded or published. He thinks a text should undergo constant transformation – always remain in a state of flux.
