Krzysztof Warlikowski’s work stands among the most remarkable phenomena in post-1989 European theater. This book joins Warlikowski’s theater with the dynamic changes in Polish society following 1989, using strategies borrowed from psychoanalysis, theater anthropology, performance studies, and cultural poetics. This book is not only about an artist of the theater, but above all about the theater production as an object of the audience’s desire, an object evoking fascination, revulsion, aversion, and opposition. This is why the performances are analyzed as a series of flash-points, constellations with powerful affective impacts. It focuses on fragments of social rituals, material objects with major potential to spark audience emotions, and gestures of violence. The piecemeal narrative serves to cull out aspects of Warlikowski’s performances that could be read as symptoms of social drama.
Grzegorz Niziołek is a professor at the Jagiellonian University and at the Ludwik Solski State Drama School in Kraków. He is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of a theater magazine and the author of several books, among which are titles on Krystian Lupa, Tadeusz Różewicz and the Polish theater of the Holocaust.
