Jerzy Grotowski

by James Slowiak, Jairo Cuesta


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, and 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.
