Tadeusz Kantor Summary

Tadeusz Kantor by Noel Witts

Tadeusz Kantor - a theoretician, director, innovator and painter famed for his very visual theatre style - was a key figure in European avant-garde theatre. He was also known for his challenging theatrical innovations, such as extending stages and the combination of mannequins with living actors. The book combines:

  • a detailed study of the historical context of Kantor's work
  • an exploration of Kantor's own writings on his theatrical craft
  • a stylistic analysis of the key works, including The Dead Class and Let the Artists Die, and their critical reception
  • an examination of the practical exercises devised by Kantor.

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