Towards a Poor Theatre


Show Synopsis

Jerzy Grotowski created the Theatre Laboratory in 1959 in Opole in south-west Poland. His work since then, with a small permanent company, has become a source of interest to many modern directors. This is a record of the ideas that have motivated the work of the Theatre Laboratory.

Another for the Library.

This collection of musings on theatrical practice not only contains great insight into the purposes for this practicum but also many great exercises that Grotowski discovered over the years with his acting troupe. He puts himself in opposition to Brecht and Artaud saying that neither was able to fully realize their theories because of, respectively, a lack of an acting system and a lack of practical work for his theories. He, instead, searches with his actors for the deep mysteries lying below the facades we present each other everday. A great addition to your theatre library and should probably fill the shelf next to Michael Chekov, Vakhtangov and Stanislavski.
