The Grotowski Institute, Wroclaw (Poland)
The Grotowski Institute combines artistic and scholarly research projects that correspond to the challenges laid down by Jerzy Grotowski's creative practice. The Institute emerged out of the Centre for Study of Jerzy Grotowski's Work and for Cultural and Theatrical Research, established in 1989, and operates from the former Teatr Laboratorium premises located in Wroclaw's Old Market Square and the forest base of Brzezinka. The Grotowski Institute continues the lines of work established by the Grotowski Centre, whilst placing more emphasis on education, promotion, producing, and publishing.
