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.
