Summary/Abstract: A review of Krzysztof Warlikowski's production of The Tempest (2003), which marked the beginning of Warlikowski's noted engagement with the debates around Jedwabne, following the publication of Jan Tomasz Gross' important book Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland. The author examines various elements of the performance, giving detailed descriptions of the staging and impact on the audience, and setting it within the context of contemporary social and cultural debates in Poland.
