SILESIA IS FOR ME…

In my life there are few important places: Opole – where I grown up, Wrocław – where I spent magic time of studies, Szczecin – city of my first steps and theatre successes and Katowice – where I live and work for more then 20 years.
Until recently I thought that I fell in love and identified myself with the region, that life has bonded me with. Here I made up my home, I had a son and had many great (and sometimes bitter) theatre "journeys".
But last importunity of subjects of Silesia and comprehensive silesianship in media, public (and theatre!) life made my feelings extensively polarize. Silesia I found mine, this Silesia that took me in, domesticated me and anchored, fell apart like in kaleidoscope on few "formations", odd ones, incomprehensible, strange, fanatic, disturbing, objectionable, sinister, sometimes excluding me as "foreigner"…Beside there still is this Silesia I got to know, coming here: fascinating, wise, worm, respectable, open, surprising, inspiring, beautiful. But my heart is already torn apart.
