Summary/Abstract: Magdalena Hasiuk's article sketches the history of Théâtre du Soleil over the fifty years of its existence. The author describes the rules determining the work of the ensemble and its main ideological assumptions. However, she particularly focuses on the role of the founder and leader of the Théâtre du Soleil – Ariane Mnouchkine. Hasiuk describes how Mnouchkine's position evolved, linking her tasks with the methods used by the ensemble in its work with text, as well as the artistic dialogue with Hélène Cixous, initiated by the director. One of the most important categories in the description of the work of Théâtre du Soleil is the notion of collective creation, whose character has changed over the years of the ensemble's existence.
