Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I want to give this book two separate ratings. The content of the writing by Grotowski deserves five stars. His theatrical work in the twentieth century was vastly important, and this is the best book to discuss it. I also want to give the Kindle edition a single star only, because the manuscript contains many plainly stupid typographical errors.

Jerzy Grotowski – Wikipedia

The preface is so riddle with them it was difficult to read. There are more stupid errors throughout the body of the book. What’s more, it’s not an inexpensive book.

By charging that much, one would think they could pay a proofreader. This book was suggested by our Thearte, and I am glad he did. A lot of good insight into a great minds’ thoughts on what acting is about. While I may not run out and join a theater group like his, I definitely was able to learn a thing or two, walk away with a better sense of what I want to accomplish as an actor.

Towards A Poor Theatre

Very good for any acting vrotowski. Might I also recommend Antero Alli: A Shaman’s Guide to Reality Selection. For any theatre professional, student or enthusiast. Highly recommend watching “My Dinner With Andre” as well. It’s a film by Wallace Shawn. Jerzy Grotowski was a saint, and to truly learn about him is to engage in an entirely different worldview and lifestyle from the world’s. This book is the best stepping stone one can find to begin that journey.
