The acting technique developed by the Jerzy Grotowski aims for complete integration of the actor’s mental and physical senses to reveal the core substance of a character. He developed the concept of “poor theatre”, where the play and actor’s technique, inherited from Stanislavski, focused on costumes, decors and lighting. The actor’s research is based on body work that aims to rid themselves of automatic reactions in order to get to the character’s essence within themselves.
This way to live the theatre presents a bold and experimental approach to text that integrates the actor’s entire body as an instrument of performance. This approach is physically demanding and requires a commitment to perfect attendance, but allow an artist to achieve important through.
