Obviously we make a laugh out of Christina’s fate where she has always been lonely in a mass society, while she is dreaming of flying the plane and saving the world from destruction…

Aldona Jankowska has been working out her own style and repertoire over the years. Her comedy performances always take the form between the monodrama, stand-up elements, improvisation, a musical full of greatly performed songs and impersonating into different characters. They also contain a very strong dramatic load. The actress played many times in English e.g. in the Norwegian theatre Projectheateret , in the National Opera in Oslo or in the Moliere Theatre in Brussels.
