Summary/Abstract: A review of Artaud. A Doppleganger and His Theater, directed by Paweł Passini (premiere: 11 May 2011, Studio Theater in Warsaw). In his latest play, Passini has decided to stage a kind of mad Artaudian dream. The figure of the French artist is presented from various perspectives, in a way that makes his philosophical visions and real life blend into one. The director is careful not to succumb entirely to Artaud’s vision, ironically distancing himself from his most radical concepts, cautioning that excess phantasm can turn the Theater of Cruelty into a laughable caricature or a naively ritualistic sort of theater.
