A place where we meet once a week ceases to be only a spatial frame. It becomes a partner for our actions and exercises. We interact with it, every time slightly differently, every time afresh. It seems that Acting Craft in Polish Theatre is above all a celebration. It is a time of encounter, a remarkable encounter since we land in a reality where we have an opportunity to enter into an intercultural dialogue, where we find an essence of a community, integrity, balance, being and acting together through a symbolic corporeality. This class has a nature of a training, a play, an encounter, as well as a ritual – a ritual of joy to commune with the other… And what surprised me most was the moment when I understood that English language which we use levels down senses and meanings, and that in fact we communicate much more clearly through our bodies (as children do).
