In 1968, when Jerzy Grotowski was working on his last performance, Apocalypsis cum figuris, one of the most important theatrical events of the 20th century, he thought about space as a value that extends and stretches among people. The space he imagined was an empty, anthropocentric space, open for establishing relations between people and seeking out the individual’s spiritual depth. Our effort to recall that event today, at the beginning of the 21st century, takes on extraordinary meaning – in particular, since one of the provocateurs of this act is Jerzy Gurawski, the stage designer who cooperated with the director in the first stage of his artistic activity. For Grotowski, in a sense apocalypse stood for the decomposition and defragmentation of the tradition of romanticism – crucial for Polish history – but also for the parallel disintegration occurring within traditional dramatic texts, dialogue, and stage communication.
The Polish national exhibition Post-Apocalypsis curated by Agnieszka Jelewska has been awarded the Gold Medal of the 13th Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space festival.
The Gold Medal PQ 2015 for Sound Design went to the Polish team for its project Post-Apocalypsis, which the jury appreciated for its clever use of sound – the sensitive and interactive sound design reflects contemporary ideas relating to the relationship between man, nature and technology as part of a hybrid communications system.
