Summary/Abstract: The author analyzes Kuba Kowalski’s play Foreign Bodies, based on Julia Holewińska’s controversial drama (Wybrzeże Theater in Gdańsk, premiere: 17 II 2012). Through binary oppositions, such as private/public, the director reveals the gender code of “Solidarity” and the problematic weave of two concepts: fatherland and gender. Presenting a symbolic biography of the Other, a transsexual, a political oppositionist and woman in one body, the trap of the body and stereotypes is revealed through almost caricature portrayals.
