  • Arte Mask

My seat was located in the upper circle, front row, very near centre, which would have been...
  • Apparition Of An Actor On The Stage
    996 words
    Grotowski The name that was given to Jerzy Grotwsky's working orientation in theatre means precisely that his direction minimizes to the maximum the scenography; the actors act in an almost naked space.
