Maciej Jackowski

I believe that certain decisions, such as what I will do in my life, are made beyond me. This was the case thirty years ago, when I felt very strongly that theatre was the world I needed, and wanted to inhabit. This may have been a coincidence, but I suddenly realised this truth about myself while sitting in the auditorium of this very theatre – the J. Słowacki Theatre – as a high school student.
