PORTUGALCZYK OSCULATI – TO MAKE-UP A PORTUGUESE OR GOING AS ONE IN POLAND?
Languages of publication
The unusual representation of a Portuguese man made in the sketch «Portugalczyk Osculati» (1959) of the polish television entertainment program Kabaret Starszych Panow suggested the pursuit and analysis of its origins and motivations. Beyond the geographical and cultural distance between Portugal and Poland, it is the recurrence and uniformity to other known representations of the Portuguese people that astounds. Opposing the omniscience and creative genius of the author, Jeremi Przybora, to the simple possibility of a poetical accident, one might find new interpretative dimensions in which not all is what it seems.
