“In Magda Romanska’s enlightening chapter, ‘Body: Tadeusz Kantor and the Posthuman Stage,’ Kantor’s practice, in which “the body no longer belongs to the character but to the interconnected landscape of mapped signs and symbols” (86) of the theatrical event, demonstrates the potential to further move away from dramatic form by rejecting the body as the source of theatrical representation entirely. Romanska argues that posthuman theatre might be a more appropriate third stage in Szondi and Lehmann’s Hegelian methodology, as it is a clearer break from modern drama and fully reverses the human body-centric pre-drama.” – Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism

Magda Romanska’s essay “offers an excellent unpacking of both Stanislaw Wyspianski’s 1904 drama, Akropolis, and its production history. Romanska’s essay makes extensive use of sources to tell a complicated story, layering text, performance, and context, and paying attention to the original script as well as performances, especially that of Jerzy Grotowski. Indeed, Romanska’s essay provides a missing, though essential analysis of a production that is often cited, but perhaps rarely understood in its full context. The methods of historiography and documentary analysis are excellent and provide an instructive model for future performance scholarship.” – ASTR Selection Committee
