THE BEATA GOES ON

Buzz Magazine LogoHaving just made her U.S. film debut (as Marina Oswald in Oliver Stone's JFK), Beata Pozniak seems Beata in Buzz Magazinepoised on the verge of at least fifteen minutes of fame. But she is no mere aspiring starlet. A celebrated actress in her native Poland, the multitalented Beata (she sculpts and writes as well as acts) has a rage for the stage. "In Poland," she says, "there was so little freedom of expression that it was the only thing that made people feel alive." Indeed, shortly after she arrived in Los Angeles, she formed an experimental performance group called Theater Discordia that draws upon poetry, folklore, dreams, music, and dance for its productions. "For me," Beata explains, "Discordia means looking to the renaissance, the baroque, the medieval periods, rediscovering archetypes, and seeing how all of that mixes together in a world in which anything can happen."
