Summary/Abstract: This article presents two cabaret artists, admittedly living in a different historical times, presenting different cabaret styles, whose fate, however, puts them to the similar test. Both Maria Krysińska (Polish Jewess, who successfully joins the life of Parisian bohemian of the late 19th century, the poet of the Club of Hydropathes and the femme chansonnier in the cabaret Chat Noir) and Fryderyk Járosy (arrived from Austria, the legendary conférencier in the cabaret Qui Pro Quo, and in other Warsaw cabarets of the interwar period) experienced the effects of deterritorialization: on the one hand can no longer identify themselves with the cultural order of their old homeland, on the other hand — they cannot fully participate in the artistic life of their new homeland. They both were trapped in the gap of time, between the two different models of life, which did not allow their full assimilation nor full exclusion..
