„Ach!” cabaret

Page from "Ach!" cabaret programme

The first performances of the „Ach!“ cabaret consisted of unrelated humoristic scenes, songs, jokes and dances. Later, the show revolved around a specific story. In the sixth edition of the cabaret there is a surprise appearance of American guests who arrive in Vilnius thanks to the use of celestial powers, resulting in a cake-walk on the stage. It was a very popular dance (also in Europe), which humoristically referred to the traditional dances of the black inhabitants from across the ocean. The drawing by Stanisław Bohusz-Siestrzeńcewicz, which shows two dancers, is proof of his drawing talent and a satirical perception of the world.
