GROTOWSKI IN THE AMERICAS

NYU Tisch School of the Arts
Screening Room 006, 721 Broadway, New York, NY
This panel featuring Nicolás Núñez and Helena Guardia from Mexico, Ryszard Nieoczym and Dawn Obokata from Canada, and Stacy Klein from the U.S. will explore how the methodology of Grotowski and the Polish Laboratory Theatre was adapted (and is still being adapted) by theatre artists in the Americas, in order to further their creative searches. The invited artists worked with Grotowski and other members of the Laboratory Theatre during "Theatre of Productions," "Paratheatre," and "Theatre of Sources" phases. The panelists will discuss Grotowski in light of their own unique social, cultural, material, and artistic contexts. Moderated by Kermit Dunkelberg, whose 2008 Ph.D. dissertation focused on Grotowski and North American theatre.
