Interview with Jerzy Grotowski, director of the Polish Laboratory Theater. In 1969 Grotowski came to America. He then advocated "poor theater... devoid of artifice... theater as holy ritual...a performance is an 'offering' to an audience." Grotowski lectured in America and rejected "poor" and "holy" theater. “Life Has changed, not me. Life, my life, comes first. Our visit to America was a very important part of my existence. Then I vagabonded across Asia, India mostly, and not for the first time. I lost my European clothes and lost a lot of weight. I dressed like an Indian. It's a quest, a search to find the essence. In theater two things are important: not to hide ourselves and not to play games or “perform. We perform in life because we are afraid of others. How to renounce this fear?” The man of 1969, neatly dressed in jacket and tie and with a conventional haircut, resembled, at the time of this interview in 1973, something of a “hippie.” Yet he speaks here with the same intensity, true to his personal search. Grotowski died in 1999.

Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject Art - Installation / Action/Performance Art / Modern Art, grade: 8/10, University of Groningen (Arts), course: Arts, Culture and Media, language: English, abstract: In this essay, Grotowki’s interest in the Avantgarde concept of primitivism in relation to the spiritual healing of the community will be explored through three phases in his work. Poor Theatre, Paratheatre and Theatre of Sources. In addition, an exploration of the phases in Grotowski’s theories, the evolution of Grotowski’s performance theories will be analyzed in the context of communal healing of the spirit through ritual and use of primordial forms of theatre. This essay applies an Anthropological approach to Grotowski and his use of ritual as it concerns itself with the relationship between society, theatre and the ideas conceived by the two. This essay explores Grotowski's preoccupation with the Neo-Avantgarde notion of returning to the ‘roots of theatre’ explored through the phases of Poor Theatre, Paratheatre and Theatre of Sources in order advocate for the ‘spiritual healing’ of the community. The Avantgarde is an artistic movement which followed Modernism, and can be considered an early phase of Post-Modernism. The Avantgarde can be split into two phases: The Historical Avantgarde, which began prior to World War II, and the Neo-Avant garde, which followed it. The Neo-Avantgarde can be classified as a period of experimentation between the 1950s and 1960s by practitioners such as Jerzy Grotowskiand Richard Schechner. Avant-garde Theatre, defines the ideology as a "philosophical grouping...linked by a specific attitude to western society, a particular aesthetic approach, and the aim of transforming the nature of theatrical performance" (Innes 4). The defining aspects of the Neo-Avantgarde are the interconnections in ideologies of the practitioners that dominated the movement and the rejection of western conventions and beliefs. This is explored through the actors physical presence, spectator-performer dynamics, the links between theatre and ritual, catharsis and the aspiration to reconnect theatre and life. The underlying concept connecting the aforementioned aspects is that of primitivism, which will be discussed in this essay in the context of Jerzy Grotowski.

One of the original members of Jerzy Grotowski’s acting company, Zygmunt Molik’s Voice and Body Work explores the unique development of voice and body exercises throughout his career in actor training. This book, constructed from conversations between Molik and author Giuliano Campo, provides a fascinating insight into the methodology of this practitioner and teacher, and focuses on his ‘Body Alphabet’ system for actors, allowing them to combine both voice and body in their preparatory process. The book is accompanied by a DVD containing the films Dyrygent (2006), which illustrates Molik’s working methods, Acting Therapy (1976), exploring his role in the Theatre of Participation, and Zygmunt Molik's Body Alphabet (2009). It also includes an extensive photo gallery documenting Zygmunt Molik’s life and work.

The book contains three accounts of five public speeches and conversations with the public of two outstanding figures of theatre and performance, Jerzy Grotowski and Ludwik Flaszen, from 1993-1996. Their speeches concern their output and their current research. The content of Ludwik Flaszen's speech is very closely related to the output of Jerzy Grotowski. The accounts are written on the base of the authors detailed notes. The main subject of these narratives is their author, who quotes the speaking characters in the third person. In this way, all texts acquire a subjective character, akin to an essay; while remaining faithful to the overall message and content of the speeches and conversations cited in them. Juliusz Tyszka also uses this form of narration to describe the interpersonal context of Flaszen's and Grotowski's talks, including the content and tone of the questions asked, the reactions of listeners etc. There is also room for short, concise characteristics of these two outstanding people and their interlocutors (who are themselves sometimes also notorious). This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of theatre and performance studies and professionals in experimental theatre and performance.
