Summary/Abstract: The author analyses Jerzy Grotowski’s production Apocalypsis cum figuris (Teatr Laboratorium, Wrocław, premiere of first version: 19 VII 1968) within the context of the gender struggle. In defiance of the canonic interpretations, Adamiecka-Sitek analyses femininity and masculinity in Grotowski’s work, revealing a kind of dramatization of the misogynistic discourse of psychoanalysis as well as male homosexuality and a species of mystical eroticism.
