Summary/Abstract: A review of the production White Wedding, based on a play by Tadeusz Różewicz, directed by Weronika Szczawińska and realised at the Stefan Żeromski Theatre in Kielce (premiere: 4 December 2010). The author considers that Szczawińska has splendidly grasped the moment for Różewicz’s play to take on renewed relevance. Just as the playwright showed that the themes of the body, sex and sexuality were not properly taken up and discussed, Szczawińska shows that the current, multi-faceted conceptualisation of body has a similar effect – it oversimplifies a web of complicated ideas or issues to several stock clichés, which are bandied about in various configurations.
