Paulina Puślednik’s most successful role was in “The Queen’s Peacock”, directed by Paweł Świątek: ‘Masłowska’s novel, after being transposed into the language of theatre, becomes “gibberish”, a cacophony of sounds from contemporary pop culture, chaos, a mishmash, a mosaic. It’s deliberate gibberish, giving a nonsensical character to postmodern culture’, wrote Maciej Pieczyński in Teatralia. Paulina Puślednik received awards for her roles in this production at the theatre festivals in Kalisz and Koszalin. This young actress’s unique beauty, great vitality and deep theatrical sense have also been noticed by other directors: Mikołaj Grabowski (severe Angela in “Waiting for the Turk” and sensual Rose in “Pan Tadeusz”), Szymon Kaczmarek (the brilliant character of Julia Gibbs in “Our Town”) and Paweł Passini (expressive Old Łendi in “Wanda”). She played the miserable daughter of Titus, a victim of unfettered violence, in Wojtek Klemm’s production of “Anatomy Titus Fall of Rome”. Jan Klata has made full use of the actress’s stage potential by giving her the spectacular, solidly constructed role of Mama Ubu in his iconoclastic, politically incorrect production of “King Ubu”: ‘Paulina Puślednik as Mama Ubu appears as a sneering diva who has lost her emploi. As the only woman in a world of lecherous, unified males, she tries out the various roles that “traditional” theatre imposes upon actors. She’s a femme fatale, a woman bidding farewell to her husband as he goes off to war, a conspirator, a sex object and her husband’s adviser. (…) Each of these formulaic roles becomes contaminated by buffoonery and exaggeration, which exposes their conventional, theatrically worn-out nature’, stated Tomasz Fryzeł in Didaskalia.
