The Background of Grotowski(1933~1999)

being born in Polish’s small town named Rzeszow

suffered from World War II in his childhood

went to Polish Theatre School learning performing arts from 1951 to 1955 and then went to Moscow studying Directs

During the time, he had a chance in touch with two Russia directors: VsevolodMeyerhold and Stanislavsky, respectively. These two men’s theory had a great influence on Grotowski’s early stages.

At 1956, Grotowski went back to Polish and started to direct in 1958.

The Simpleton


“In such an approach the director’s vision overrides the playwright’s, and the original script becomes material to be shaped.”

Esau (RyszardCieslak) sings the praises of the freedom of a hunter’s life.

“Because of the actor’s central role in performance, spectators.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.
