Summary/Abstract: An article by Zbigniew Majchrowski analyzing the ties between Professor Jan Błoński and the Laboratory Theater as a point of departure to examining the ambiguous position of Błoński the critic vis-a-vis the theater of Jerzy Grotowski. The author takes a look at his evolving critical reflections and and describes the shared sites between Błoński's academic creativity and Grotowski's theater, including an interest in the theatrical vision of Antonin Artaud and the undying inspiration of the work of Wyspiański. Majchrowski tries to find a response to what caused him to occupy such a special position in the Laboratory Theater, his work being amid the output of four critics of the Kazimierz Wyka school.
