Teatr ZAR.net: Octavian Saiu in Conversation with Jarosław Fret
13 may 2021
Teatr ZAR is a unique company
Is there an ultimate truth, however? Jaroslaw Fret seems to believe that, and – like Grotowski, his glorious precursor, did once upon a time – he has embarked on a journey to find it. His stage language defies all definitions: it is close to performance art, but not the same. It is a form of anthropological theatre, yet not exactly that. It is music, or at least based on sound. Nevertheless, to place it in any such category would be insufficient. Zar is a phenomenon of authenticity. About that, about truth, about the body, about the encounter between the “performer” and the “spectator”, about faith in the theatre during this troubled period… in a dialogue occasioned by the twelfth Between.Pomiędzy Festival.
