“Because of the actor’s central role in performance, Grotowski devoted much of his attention to actor training.”Seeing his training ways makes me think of a movie “V for vendetta.” In that film, V tortures heroine Ivy in both spiritual and physical, wanting to remove her fear. Eventually Ivy successfully reaches the state with no fear and thrusts herself out to fight the evil government.
