Genèse de l'oeuvre théâtrale de Tadeusz Kantor

Abstract : Kantor is deeply influenced by the traditions of the Jewish and Catholic communities which dominate the daily life of Wielopole. To this one can add his perfect knowledge of Greek tragedy, of the great myths of the History of Poland, and of the artistic developments at the beginning of the twentieth century. The Nazi occupation influences considerably his artistic ideas. He then write majors texts, which organise and explain all of his previous research. The end of the war brings a breath of fresh air with numerous projects which break from the authoritarian application of socio-realism. The “thaw” allows the creation of the Cricot 2 theater and new research centered around the games with Witkiewicz allow im to arrive at a mastery of personal theatrical expression. It develops in steps until the beginning of the seventies, when a look through a window gives birth to the Theater of Death, which from 1975 on conquers the international scene
