Jerzy Grotowski



BAM Affiliation For his first stateside visit, in the fall of 1969, Jerzy Grotowski and his Polish Laboratory Theatre presented under BAM’s auspices three of Grotowski’s most iconic productions: The Constant Prince, Akropolis, and Apocalypsis Cum Figuris (which in fact was the last piece Grotowski professionally directed, before he turned his attention to paratheatrical research). Originally the Polish Lab Theatre was to perform at BAM and in the Hanson Place Central Methodist Church, next door to BAM, but when Grotowski arrived he felt the spaces wouldn’t work. Ever-exacting, Grotowski found the Washington Square Methodist Church in the Village to be a more suitable space for his ritualistic excavations of the psyche.
