Editor(Owen Daly)> Polish theater director Jerzy Grotowski died in January of 1999. His work passes into history. Many that have been influenced by his work survive and prosper. They serve as sources of information and knowledge for those now looking for information about Grotowski and his work. A group of us worked with Grotowski's techniques and guidance for three years, from 1967 through 1970. Our director was Dr. Jacques Burdick. We were known as "Pillory Theater".
The first Pillory Theater production, The Termites, was produced in 1967 and performed in 1967 and 1968. In 1968 - 1969 three productions, Runesglee, The Elephant, and a children's theater piece, Bags, Boats, Tubs, and Kids were developed and performed. Runesglee was presented at the Yale Drama Festival that year. In the Fall of 1969 Jacques Burdick and his troupe mounted a production of Calderon de la Barca's Life is a Dream which they presented at the "Festiwal Festiwali" in Wroclaw, Poland the week of October 18 - 26 1969.
