Summary/Abstract: The review provides a description of two productions directed by Jan Klata for the Stary Theatre in Krakow. The first one, To Damascus (5.10.2013) by Strindberg, opens the Swinarski commemorative season at the Stary Theatre; the second could be read as Klata’s aesthetic manifesto as a new director. The reviewer claims that King Oedipus directed by Klata proves that he is determined and bold enough to creatively pursue theatrical experiment – although this strategy may be risky and dangerous, it is likely to open new ways of exploring contemporary theatre.
