A graduate of the Directing Faculty at the Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw, a winner of the Scholarship from the French Government. She has worked with theatres in Warsaw, Poznań, Łódź, Kraków and Toruń. She worked as an assistant for plays such as “Persona. Marilyn” and “Persona. Ciało Simone” by Krystian Lupa. She made her debut in 2009 with “Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the 13th Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival. She also directed “Way to Heaven” about demonstrative concentration camps and masking the evil. The director returned to the theme of falsifying history in the play “Rechnitz.” She also directed “Zażynki,” a play granted the Metafora Rzeczywistości Award, in which, in collaboration with a playwright Anna Wakulik, she combined family drama with politics, and “Wasza Wysokość,” a performance drawing upon Wanda Rutkiewicz’s life. Then, at TR Warszawa, with “Holzwege,” she drew a portrait of Tomasz Sikorski, a forgotten avant-gard pianist and one of the most interesting composers of the 20th century. Lately, at the Wilam Horzyca Theater in Toruń, she completed the project “Reykjavík ’74,” a story about a group of young people who pleaded guilty of committing a crime they had not committed.
