Jerzy Grotowski | Spiritual acrobat
Theatre director, researcher, writer, educator
“Pursuant to the program of ‘active culture’ he had formulated in the 1970s, Grotowski began to focus on interpersonal relationships in a new dimension, specifically, that of ‘celebration’. His new ‘live culture’ was designed to lead to face-to-face meetings between human beings. In Grotowski’s last theatre production, Apocalypsis Cum Figuris, the viewer and actor were unified to the maximum degree possible, though a division was retained between active and passive participants.”Culture.pl
“Teatr Laboratorium, directed by Grotowski together with Ludwik Flaszen, was not a theatre in the traditional sense. It was an institute for research on the art of theatre, and that of the actor in particular.”Culture.pl
