Mieczyslaw Janowski worked in Grotowski's Polish Laboratory Theatre for 8 years playing in all their core productions. In 1999, he was honored by the President of Poland for his entire artistic work with the Golden Order of Merit. Andrzej Paluchiewicz worked with Grotowski for over a decade as an actor in the Polish Laboratory Theatre and as a participant in the paratheatrical work conducted by Grotowski. The two actors will discuss daily life inside the Polish Laboratory Theatre - from the rehearsals, role preparation, and performances, to what it was like to work with the Grotowski of that period. Moderated by Dominika Bennacer. Q&A will follow.
A part of TRACING GROTOWSKI'S PATH: YEAR OF GROTOWSKI IN NEW YORK, curated by Professor Richard Schechner and presented by the Polish Cultural Institute and the Performance Studies Department, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU.
