Intersecting Planes: Hypotheses

This work demonstration deals with preparing the actor for training conceived as a dramaturgical process. How to recognize the drama integrated into scenic actions? How to retain its clarity when it is necessary to rebuild actions in the conditions when our means of expression are limited? How to prevent ‘physical drama’ degradation in the context of body degradation?

Teatr ZAR

Teatr ZAR is a multinational group that was formed in Wrocław by apprentices of the Grotowski Institute and took shape during annual research expeditions to Georgia between 1999 and 2003. During these expeditions, the apprentices collected much musical material, including a core of centuries-old polyphonic songs that are probably the oldest forms of polyphony in the world. The name of the group, ZAR, is taken from the title of funeral songs, which in Caucasian tradition, among others in Svaneti, are the essence of singing understood as “column of sound”.
