Sebastian Cichocki – chief curator of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.

The drama was created as a derivative of two children’s books about contemporary art, written by Sebastian Cichocki. The first is an anthology S.Z.T.U.K.A [A.R.T.] for the Dwie Siostry publishing house, the second is the short story “Goose, sheep and rainbow in the dark”, published in Sweden. The protagonists of this second book, the hyperactive Goose and the melancholic Sheep, visit a gigantic museum levitating somewhere on the outskirts of the Milky Way. The text is based on descriptions of existing works of conceptual art, including “An Oak Tree” by Michael Craig-Martin, transferred to the world of children’s science fiction. Wojciech Kucharczyk, who developed the text as a radio play and incorporated it into the narrator of the story, is co-author (as Mołr Drammaz) an experimental album recorded with children to.je.take.co.take.to.!, among others. The recording was recently found and remastered with the intention of being presented at the Sanatorium of Sound. It is dedicated for young listeners as a sound adventure.
