Summary/Abstract: Agnieszka Kallaus writes of the performance The Underground: A Response to Dostoevsky (Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards, premiere: 25.08.2016). The author believes that in Richards’ performance Dostoevsky’s work (particularly fragments of The Brothers Karamazov) become a space of dialogue between the director and Grotowski’s thought. Richards faces off with his guru, gaining independence and signaling the start of a new, egalitarian phase of his work, which more resembles theater than ritual. Kallaus stresses Richards’ special status on the stage, she lists and analyzes the literary texts that are the basis for the script, and analyzes the performance in terms of Jung’s philosophy.
