Summary/Abstract: Katarzyna Fazan shows how an analysis of three artistic strategies used by Grzegorzewski – relationship to the text, treatment of the aesthetic category of mimesis,and use of the category of the sublime – can be used to undermine outworn perceptions of the artist. Fazan shows that there is no gap between Grzegorzewski’s theater and strategies applied in the new theater, though this is not a situation of simple references and clear influences. The author does demonstrate, however, that Grzegorzewski is constantly found between “tradition and the avant-garde,” which is why she calls him an elusive chameleon – an ancestor of techniques observed in today’s theater.
