Maciej Sobociński (born 1975) - theatre director, stage designer. He graduated in direction at Kraków's Ludwik Solski State Theatre School. His debut production was Moliere's "Tartuffe, or the Hypocrite" in 1999 at the Solski Theatre in Tarnów. For Adam Mickiewcz's "Forefathers' Eve", directed in 2002 at the Kalisz Bogusławski Theatre, he received an award at the Opole Theatrical Confrontations "Polish Classics". Since his debut he has gone mainly for classic works, which he reinterprets, attempting to find a contemporary context within them. He produced Moliere's "Don Juan" (2001) and Nikolai Gogo's "The Government Inspector" (2002) and "The Marriage" (2004). At Wrocłow's Teatr Polski he directed "Mit: Kordian" following Juliusz Słowacki's play (2005). In 2006 he directed "Endgame" for Teatr. Bagatela, and in 2007 "Othello". In 2004 he presented a contemporised version of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Requiem" for the Sacrum-Profanum Festival, and a year later for the same festival he directed a musical version of "Romeo and Juliet" with music by Sergei Prokofiev.
