Jerzy Grotowski Summary

Jerzy Grotowski by James Slowiak

Master director, teacher, and theorist, Jerzy Grotowski's work extended well beyond the conventional limits of performance. Now revised and reissued, this book combines:

an overview of Grotowski's life and the distinct phases of his work

an analysis of his key ideas

a consideration of his role as director of the renowned Polish Laboratory Theatre

a series of practical exercises offering an introduction to the principles underlying Grotowski's working methods.

As a first step towards critical understanding, and an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performance Practitioners offer unbeatable value for today's student.
