Jerzy Grotowski

Jerzy Grotowski

Jerzy Grotowski (1933 - 1999) was an international leader of the experimental theatre who became famous in the 1960s as the director of productions staged by the Polish Laboratory Theatre of Wroclaw.  He was a leading exponent of audience involvement and set up emotional confrontations between a limited group of spectators and the actors; the performers were disciplined masters of bodily and vocal contortions.
