Trivia
Global theatrical innovations from Poland
Theatre of Death
Artist and director Tadeusz Kantor (1915-1990) refused to be guided by texts, placing the emphasis on the visual elements of theatre. Kantor combined radical props and stage design with happenings (different art forms brought together in a live performance) to manifest the absurdity and emptiness of reality. In 1975,Kantor created Dead Class, a controversial play from which he developed the Theatre of Death concept, probing such motifs as death, memory, spiritual transcendence, and the most basic human desires.
Poor Theatre
This form of theatre is derived from the ideas and work of director Jerzy Grotowski (1933-1999). Poor Theatre seeks to distil the essence of the dramatic art form. Grotowski argued that interaction between actors and spectators is the only necessary element in theatre, with lighting, sound effects and set design minimised in his productions. In his view, even the stage could be abandoned. Grotowski also developed training methods that demanded his actors constantly engage in self-exploration, fusing their inner beings into performances.
