An actress with enormous charm and stage presence, whose talent we recently had the chance to admire in Paweł Miśkiewicz’s “Gulliver’s Travels.” In this adaptation of Swift’s work she played one of the philosophers with zest and a healthy dose of distance, as observed by Michał Centkowski: “In the prologue, the women’s choir of Gullivers, dressed in male clothes, borrow the words of contemporary theorists to weave philosophical reflections on the history of homo sapiens. (…) Issuing a challenge to the male colonial perspective of the epoch in which Swift was writing, the actresses adopt the consecutive forms of the inhabitants of strange lands through which the famed protagonist roamed.”
This role in Paweł Miśkiewicz’s drama was not Aleksandra Nowosadko’s first appearance on the national stage. She made her debut in the Stary Theatre in the role of Adela in the dark staging of Lorca’s “House of Bernarda Alba,” directed by Alejandro Radawski, and then took on the role of the Muse in “Audience 89” based on the work of Bogusław Schaeffer and directed by Tomáš Svoboda: “The unconventional work of the Author, Director, and Actor, in which the viewers are enlisted, is overseen by the plucky and vivacious Muse, Aleksandra Nowosadko” (lifeinkrakow.pl).
At the beginning of her career, she could be followed at the Krakow National Academy of Theatre Arts, where she appeared in two diploma pieces – “The (Not Entirely) Futurological Congress” by Paweł Miśkiewicz, and “The Effect” by Agnieszka Glińska, which were perhaps best summed up by Tomasz Domagała: “an actor-based play. In this case – the acting is magnificent.” While still a student, Aleksandra Nowosadko was hired to perform in Television Theatre, where she took on the role of Basia in Wojciech Pitala’s “Secret Client.”
