ABSTRACT
Avec Grotowski is a collection of articles, interviews and memories of Peter Brook about the Polish director Jerzy Grotowski, comprising from the first encounters of the two artists in the mid-1960s, to Brook’s reflections after Grotowski’s death in 1999. The texts emphasize the character of testimony, from someone – Brook –, who has closely followed the route of an artist – Grotowski –, who undertook to protect him and to disseminate his work. Walking between reverence and the elucidation of the work, Brook signals, along their testimonies, to a possible understanding of the peculiar trajectory of Jerzy Grotowski.
