On the 15.09.2019 in the Teatr Polski in Bielsko-Biała the opening night of the drama by Jarosław Świerszcz took place. „Beztlenowce” (that can be translated into anaerobics) is yet another intimate theatre drama, in which the director takes a look at the human nature. The author, and at the same time the director, comes deeply into the intimate life of his protagonists – a couple of unhappy men who desperately long for intimacy and understanding and at the same time hurt each other.

The drama „Beztlenowce” was realised as a part of the „Off Road” project. It is a cycle of intimate pieces presented on the Mała Scena (Small Stage) that exists next to the main stream.
