Summary/Abstract: Katarzyna Waligóra reviews Zapolska Superstar, or: How to Lose in Order to Win (Dramatyczny Theater in Wałbrzych, premiere: 16.10.2015). The author stresses the ambiguous effect of the performance: the artists approach the figure of Gabriela Zapolska with seriousness and respect, but they also maintain some ironic distance toward her. Zapolska's uncompromising attitude is problematized, as is her remarkable self-assurance, which are depicted as mechanisms to negate outworn norms and conventions. Waligóra particularly focuses on the actors, who have a splendid grasp of the text's satirical potential, and who sometimes have critical interpretations of the views expressed within it.
