Summary/Abstract: An article inspired by the play Samuel Zborowski, directed by Paweł Wodziński (Polski Theater in Bydgoszcz, premiere: 28.03.2015). The author points out that Polishness is not at the heart of the Bydgoszcz production, and Lucifer – its central figure – travels between different worlds and times. This transforms the story of Zborowski into a tale of contemporary revolutionaries and rebels; of a self-made man who matures to his own subjectivity. Iwanczewska believes that in Wodziński's production myth is transgressed in order to create emancipatory potential.
