Bolesław Brzozowski is a subtle, nuanced artist with a natural vis comica and masterful control over his body’s expressiveness. He has played several dozen roles in productions by outstanding directors such as Andrzej Wajda, Jerzy Jarocki, Rudolf Zioło, Tadeusz Bradecki and Mikołaj Grabowski. He has most often worked with Krystian Lupa – in Fiodor Dostoevsky’s “The Brothers Karamazov”, Rainer Maria Rilke’s “Malte”, Thomas Bernhard’s “The Lime Works”, both parts of Hermann Broch’s “Sleepwalkers”, Mikhail Bulgakov’s “The Master and Margarita” and “Zarathustra”, based on Friedrich Nietzsche. His excellent technique, combined with unlimited formal courage, has yielded excellent results in work with this charismatic actor. One of Brzozowski’s best roles was as Sancho Panza in “Don Quixote”, directed by Marek Fiedor: ‘He is the complete opposite of the classic image of this character: the fat, clownish servant, contrasting with his master in every possible respect. Brzozowski’s character, though sometimes sceptical, believes in the fulfilment of Don Quixote’s dream. He understands him perfectly, supports him with all of his strength and empathises with him’, stated Tomasz Konina in his analysis of the role. Brzozowski is perfectly comfortable in Jan Klata’s productions: in Philip K. Dick’s “The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch”, Aeschylus’s “Oresteia”, Henryk Sienkiewicz’s “Trilogy”, Roman Jaworski’s “The Wedding of Count Orgaz” and Alfred Jarry’s iconoclastic “King Ubu”. He gave an interesting interpretation of the Charlatan in Georg Büchner’s “Woyzeck”, directed by Mariusz Grzegorzek; he also played several vague characters in the bloody production of Heiner Müller’s “Anatomy Titus Fall of Rome”, directed by Wojtek Klemm.
To his vast catalogue of characters in Jan Klata’s plays, the actor added the role of Captain Forster in Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People” in 2015.
