Rena Mirecka was one of the key figures in Jerzy Grotowski's "theatre of productions" and paratheatrical experiments from 1959 to 1984. She was instrumental in the conception and development of the "plastic exercises" and created all of the leading female roles including those in Acropolis, The Constant Prince, and Apocalypsis cum Fuguris. Since 1982 she has pursued her own personal research in physical and spiritual theatrical expression. Since 1993 she has directed her own Theatre Center in Sardinia, Italy. Her current work is called "The Way."
