The author discusses Magdalena Rewerenda’s approach to the relationship between the theater and the archive, as proposed in her book Performatywne archiwum teatru: Konsekwencje Nie-Boskiej komedii. Szczątków Olivera Frljicia [The Performative Archive of Theater: The Consequences of Theater of The Un-Divine Comedy. Remains by Oliver Frljić] (Toruń 2020). The reviewer focuses on the strategies used by artists and researchers to redefine the notion of the archive and reveal its revolutionary potential. She is interested in Rewerenda’s analyses of theater projects by Oliver Frljić and Weronika Szczawińska / Agnieszka Jakimiak, and of social and media performances provoked by them that foreground categories such as trauma, decorum, canon, and national institutions. The review also follows Rewerenda’s search for a new definition of the theater archive as a performative archive, highlighting its role in the clash between theater archons and archive anarchists (“anarchivists”) who challenge existing hierarchies.
