Heart of Practice is a unique and invaluable insight into the workings of one of theatre’s true pioneers, presented by his closest collaborator. This book charts the development of Grotowski’s dramatic research through a decade of conversations with his apprentice, Thomas Richards.

Tuscany’s ‘Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards’ is the enduring legacy of a master teacher, director and theorist, and home to much of Grotowski’s most significant work. Interviewed by leading scholars, and offering his own intimate accounts, Richards gives a vivid and detailed view of the Workcenter’s evolution, providing:

  • concrete illustration of the Workcenter’s distinctive creative practices
  • rigorous discussion of over twenty years of world-renowned research
  • previously unpublished performance photos
  • privileged insight into what Grotowski considered to be the culmination of his life’s work.
