Summary/Abstract: A record of a lecture given in the Institute of Art at the Polish Academy of Sciences during a session on Michel Leiris. The author recalled Leiris’ texts on African cults of possession, and reconstructed his comprehension of the theatrical spectacle, the ritual, and 'theatricality'. He also granted new contexts to the categories used by Leiris – 'the enacted theatre' and 'the experienced theatre'.
