Voices from Within by Paul Allain Voices from Within, Paperback (January 2015)

Voices from Within brings together, for the first time in English, the distinctive voices of renowned director Jerzy Grotowski's Polish colleagues, providing a rare insight into different areas of their work. Through diverse testimonies, the collection opens up new perspectives on this changing practice, from the individuals who co-created it.

Grotowski's Empty Room by Paul Allain Grotowski's Empty Room, Hardback (August 2009)

Jerzy Grotowski (1933-99) was a Polish stage director, theatrical theorist, and founder and director of the small but influential Polish Laboratory Theatre. This volume reflects with special insight on how theater scholars and practitioners can further Grotowski's work and how his legacy may be developed in the theater.
