Jerzy Grotowski


Actor training and experimentation with the performance space is at the heart of Grotowski’s work, as is the development of an intensely profound actor-audience relationship and a highly inventive approach to text using a montage of different scripted material taken from a variety of sources.

Grotowski believes that an actor is a sculptor, not a painter; he refers to this approach as the ‘Via Negativa’, which means stripping away the blocks that prevent the actor from achieving their ultimate goal.
