KantorThe life and theatrical works of Polish director/playwright Tadeusz Kantor form the basis for this haunting assemblage of text, performance and poetry. Out of the rubble of post-war Poland, and under penalty of death from first the Nazis then Stalin, Kantor created a new kind of theatre, a radical experiment in performance whose influence is still felt today. Combining Kantor’s critical writings with excerpts from his theatrical pieces and recreations of his rehearsal process, award-winning playwright Jacob Juntunen creates a complex meditation on war, remembrance, and the place of art in society that is at once a work of history, of performance theory, and a profoundly moving tribute to to a visionary artist.
