Marta Ojrzyńska is an actress whom it is impossible to feel indifferent about – her strong, slightly hoarse voice and distinctive face predestined her to play expressive, unique characters. She made her debut at the Stary Theatre in “COMPOnents”, directed by Michał Borczuch, and then also performed in his subsequent productions. She played the characters of Tunia in “A Great Man for Small Business”, Lota I in “Werther”, Agnes in “Brand. The City. The Chosen Ones” and the electrifying seducer-child Lulu in the production of Wedekind’s “Lulu”. Her subsequent roles were the masterfully portrayed, constantly intoxicated Andrea (modelled on Amy Winehouse) in Krystian Lupa’s “Factory 2”, the schizophrenically split Maria Brigitte Frank/Maria Queen of Poland (christening Mieszko I in German) in Krzysztof Garbaczewski’s “Gallery of Polish Kings”, and the exhibitionistic Helena in Łukasz Twarkowski’s “Acropolis”. As the Cabaret Actress/Rosa Luxemburg, she greatly contributed to the success of “The Battle of Warsaw 1920”. She also performed in another production directed by Monika Strzępka – the highly-acclaimed play “The Undivine Comedy: I’M GONNA TELL GOD EVERYTHING!”, in which she vividly played the role of the Convert/Emporium of Guilt, a great-granddaughter of emancipated peasants who is sentenced to work at a photocopy shop. In Garbaczewski’s entrancingly staged “Hamlet”, she played the role of Rosencrantz as well as Helena Modrzejewska, who introduces Konrad Swinarski (Szymon Czacki) to the secrets of the stage and poses meaningful questions: ‘What is “Hamlet” really about? Who still reads it, watches it, understands it?’ (Olga Katafiasz, teatralny.pl).
