Film Documentation

Part of On Grotowski and His Legacy. A three-day event at Lincoln Center

Saturday, July 11, 2009 - Sunday, July 12, 2009

Film Society of Lincoln Center, Walter Reade Theater
165 W. 65th Street, New York, NY

Although it is difficult, if not impossible, to capture on film the full experience of Grotowski's work, some sense of his accomplishments can be represented in the film medium. During two days of screenings, audiences will have a chance to see films of some of Grotowski's most famous productions from his theatre period, and a rarely shown film documentation from the final phase of his life's research, known as "Art as vehicle." Also on view will be a documentary concerning Grotowski's "Theatre of Sources" period and films and fragments of the recent performing arts research of the Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards. Each film will be introduced by an expert, including Paul Allain, Mario Biagini, Thomas Richards, Jill Godmilow and Lisa Wolford Wylam, who will put what is seen in its historical and artistic context.
