Jerzy Grotowski interview Wywiad z Jerzym Grotowskim

Jerzy Grotowski stalks about the Theatre of the Poor.

Wow it's been a long time since I've been in touch with this stuff, I remember being so influenced by this approach to theatre in my teens. This pre dates Lars Von Trier's, Dogma films; in the idea of paring down an art form to re-connect with what is essential about it. Again, this idea of too much technique obscuring the essence.

I don't know why this seems to be popping up as a theme with me lately, it's not as if my technique is so polished in anything that I do that it will threaten to take over! :-)
