Gosia Wdowik (°1988) is a theatre maker and active member of GILDIA, The Union of Polish Theatre Makers. Her heart is based in Poland, but her imagination is always somewhere else. During her Master Studies at DAS Theatre (2020-2022), she worked with the topic of burnout and explored the space between exhaustion and agency by implementing methods from activism into her artistic practice. Her main question was: how to create both theatre and change from a place of exhaustion? In her recent performance Shame (NOWY TEATR, Warsaw) she explored social shame connected with the working-class origins in her own family, over three generations of women. Past works of Wdowik include If you lived here with Tamara Antonijevic (Mousonturm, Frankfurt,) Transit Monumental together with K.A.U. kollective (Spielart Festival, Munich), Fiasko (Staatstheater, Darmstadt) and Return of Goddess (Sophiensaele, Berlin). With Girls (Theater Studio, Warsaw) and Football players (TR Warsaw) she tackles the topic of bodily emancipation. In May 2023, her graduation work (DAS Theatre) She was a friend of someone else premiered at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels.
