- Premiere: 12 December 2008
- Choreography/ dance: Agnieszka Kamińska

why are those hearts beating,
how do they get their power,
why am I staring at them,
could it be the fear of death that turns them into pounding caravans?
The performance is a confrontation with the family history dating back to the times of II World War, as well as a reflection on our ancestors' heritage passed onto us. It's a journey through various emotional states, a story about the passing of time and the struggle against time.
‘The premiere of the newest solo performance of Agnieszka Kaminska places Amareya theatre in the forefront of Tricity independent theatres. ‘Tribute to J.S.', touching upon the subject of confrontation with the family history dating back to the times of II World War, was enthusiastically received by the audience and was a reflection of Kaminska's sensitivity and artistic maturity. It was unquestionably one of the best performances performed in Tricity this year. (...) Her genuine and touching confession electrified the whole audience. By her dance, gesture and look she showed the feeling of oppression, fear, loss, but also the desire to live and be free, the need to get back the individuality. If someone claims that the generation of grandchildren of those who experienced war cannot understand anything, they must see this performance.'
