"Black Ballad" in rev. Piotr Brząkalik’s column

We invite to listen

MORE

Priest Piotr Brząkalik is a well-known person to Silesia residents and to our audience as well. His "Columns not from the Ambo" broadcasted by Radio Em have a growing number of listeners and for some time past also readers (in our Theatre there were two r-d-v centred on book collection of rev. Brząkalik’s columns).

As of late the priest has made his debut also as an actor – in a play "Wujek.81. Black Ballad" dir. by Robert Talarczyk, where he impersonates Priest who in bath house says mass to miners on strike. In one of his newest columns rev. Brząkalik decided to share his thoughts on the performance with the listener.

We invite do listen – HERE.

At Main Stage of Teatr Śląski the winner is "Glorious!" from Teatr Polonia with Krystyna Janda in lead part, at Teatr Korez stage viewers found "Daddy" from Kraków Teatr Bagatela the best spectacle – we are doubly happy because the author of a text is Artur Pałyga, our theatre’s playwright.

Who’s behind it?

No later than in a week’s time "Word on Jakób Szela" will settle on our playbill. What we know about a director of a show – Michał Kmiecik?

MORE

It was a real theatre sock! When in 2011 young, merely 19-year old kid from Wrocław won Metaphors of Reality (playwrights’ contest of Poznań Polish Radio; for his text, "Death of the Employee" Kmiecik was given grand prix and audience award) it was clear, there revolution comes. He was quickly recognised as white hope of Polish theatre. As he recollected later: „I feel pressure around myself, here comes young, fresh barbarian, who’ll kick the shit of everyone in a dirty, firm, angry way”. 

And it was exactly like that. Michał Kmiecik became stage voice of Indignados Movement generation – he dealt with day-to-day problems as the youth unemployment, or scandals related to so called apartment blocks’ cleaners. His works for stage turned out to be full of life and up-to-date, so they connected to the audience. One of them, Wedding, was a half-finalist of Gdynia Drama Award fourth edition. His co-workers were Marcin Liber, Remigiusz Brzyk or Justyna Łagowska, producing performances at the most important theatres of Poland. In 2011 Michał Kmiecik made his debut as director staging a show after his own text – "Who Killed Aldona Ivanovna?" in Teatr Dramatyczny in Warszawa.

In his play appear  quotations and inspirations by classic literature. So it was only a matter of time that he took it up seriously. As a director he dealt with Sławomir Mrożek’s artistic output ("Vatzlav" in The Kazimierz Dejmek Teatr Nowy in Łódź) or Wojciech Bogusławski’s one ("Cracovians and Highlanders" in Teatr Polski in Wrocław). What’s important still – he didn’t rewrite it anew, didn’t x out anything, he treated with respect the texts talking about problem he found also in our life. In an interview for Polityka weekly he said: „Theatre is a stand, journalism, it should be up-to-date. […] One should fight with concrete thing. I want to make art that connects with audience’s everyday life”.

In a while, on 10th February at our Chamber Stage opening night of "Word on Jakób Szela" by Brunon Jasieński, adaptation and direction by Michał Kmiecik. Though the lines are of those of classic poem, we can be sure that a story on social rebellion against powers-to-be preserved its topicality. This story will born out of anger and humiliation…
