Summary/Abstract: How to describe an acting body? Wojciech Bogusławski as depicted by Zbigniew Raszewski in his monumental book Bogusławski seems to be static, even when he dances. Historical descriptions are in fact quite conventional and do not allow us to capture the essence of acting. As I argue the body of the eighteen-century actor resembles the body of soldier. It is trained in a similar way, and, basically, strongly rhythmical. As I believe rhythm and musicality allows us to capture the phenomenon of acting in the best possible way. In thisarticle I refer to the works of researchers such as Jean-Marie Pradier, Marcel Mauss or Edward T. Hall.
