Summary/Abstract: A record of a panel discussion that took place 8 December 2010 at the Aleksander Zelwerowicz Theater Academy in Warsaw. The panelists present their concepts on the ties between Lacanian psychoanalysis and theater. Drawing upon the Lacanian interpretation of Sophocles’s Antigone, Krzysztof Pawlak turns his eye to the issue of the revelation of speech, and the related fashion in which theater affects the viewer. Andrzej Leder makes reference to Dorota Semenowicz’s paper on (A)pollonia in trying to unravel the function which Ancient Greece plays from the perspective of centuries. Paweł Dybel, finally, points out the theatricality of the psychoanalytical therapy situation, and then reverses the title of the panel discussion to wonder “Why should Lacan need the theater?”
