Apocalypsis cum figuris – życiie po życiu
APOCALYPSIS CUM FIGURIS – LIFE AFTER LIFE
Languages of publication
This text concerns the legacy of Jerzy Grotowski, and upon the basis of archival material dealing with the famous spectacle Apocalypsis cum figuris, or primarily its filmed account directed by Ermanno Olmi, it deliberates on the possibilities and purposefulness of a contemporary interpretation of the Grotowski oeuvre. The basic problem involving the Olmi film is Grotowski’s request not to render it available. Researchers specialising in Grotowski thus face a fundamental question whether despite his will and the flaws of the film version it should be shown and, more important, treated as one of the sources for studies on the legacy of the founder of the Theatre of 13 Rows. I. Guszpit considered this problem while describing his own attempts at analysing the film, conducted as part of his didactic work.
