Summary/Abstract: Monika Kwaśniewska in her review of Zachodnie wybrzeże. Powrót na pustynię (Quay West/Return to the Desert, dir. M. Borczuch, Teatr Polski, Wroclaw, 4.10.2014) shows how the production’s acting and directing strategies represent the key sense of alienation and marginalization so characteristic for Koltès’s drama. The particular method of building characters, constructing stage space and establishing the relation between the stage and the audience manifests an acute sense of strangeness and alienation and ultimately leaves the audience both lost and deeply touched.
