These two linked panels focus on the "Paratheatre", "Theatre of Sources", and "Objective drama" stages of Grotowski's performance-based research. These phases have been sparsely documented, in part because the work was less accessible to the public than that of the theatre of productions. "Theatre of Sources" focused on identifying those elements of embodied behaviors present in the traditional practices of diverse cultures and on exploring their impact when performed by practitioners from outside that cultural milieu. "Objective Drama," centered at the University of California-Irvine, extended this investigation on the psychophysiological impact of elements derived from ritual traditions, alongside a renewed emphasis on performance craft. These interrelated panels gather important contributors to Grotowski's research from the mid 70s through the 80s, including those who traveled with Grotowski on his expeditions to conduct field research, and those who served key leadership roles in his US-based research.
