AWARENESS  ten days with Grotowski
In 1991 Grotowski held a workshop in Turin. The workshop lasted ten days. Ten lessons during which he talked about theater and told his own history. The audience consisted mainly of actors, directors, students and teachers, but I think that anyone, whatever he did in life, could have learnt something. We organized that workshop with Teatro Laboratorio Settimo, together with University and Teatro Stabile of Turin. So, during the two weeks of his stay, I had the opportunity to take care of Grotowski and his workshop. He spoke French during the work, with short sentences translated in Italian by his assistant, Carla Pollastrelli. Thanks to that slowness of this speech, I could take notes which are almost a transcription of his lessons. I would like to tell you about those ten lesson, those two weeks of Grotowski in Turin, according to that notes. Those who knew him, knows he was really jealous of his thought. He was very big on his fidelity and precision. He could not stand very much who spoke on his behalf. For this reason I wish to clarify that in no way I want to interpreter Grotowski’s thought. I will only tell what I understood from his lessons: the story of the meeting with an extraordinary man, with a master.
